Pickles

A few years ago I discovered Bread and Butter pickles from the Southern Living Cookbook. Good stuff. Melinda likes to chop them up for chicken salad from the chickens I smoke. We were running low. Friday we drove over to my supply for pickling cucumbers when they are in season and yesterday I managed to put up 8 pints. The recipe calls for a couple of green bell peppers chopped up. I didn’t have any but I had a red one. I think the red adds some color.

I found pickling cucumbers at a local roadside stand. Good thing because we were down to our last jar of the last batch. Melinda has found she likes to chop them up into chicken salad. I smoked a bunch of chickens lately and de-boned them, froze the meat, and we have chicken salad with it. I was surprised to be able to replenish our pickle stock this early in the year, but hurrah for that. These are Bread and Butter pickles from the Southern Living Cookbook.
