All About Bread and Butter Pickles

The perfect balance between sweet, tangy, briny and crunchy, bread and butter pickles are a fan favorite among pickle lovers. And when it comes to making pickles, we can’t deny that this one of our favorites. The basic bread and butter pickle recipe adds a sliced sweet onion to the mix of cucumber, white vinegar, sugar, salt, yellow mustard seeds, coriander seeds, and celery seeds. The pickling brine and sliced onion enhances the dill pickle to add the perfect mix of sweet and salty, complemented by a nice crunch – maybe even better than the typical sliced kosher dill pickles.

How We Make Bread and Butter Pickles

Making pickles is what we do, and there’s a method to the pickle madness. For the pickling process, Mt. Olive uses small pickling cucumbers. These are selected based on their length, quality of the outer skin, and other factors to ensure we can deliver only the highest quality and best-tasting products to our customers. The pickling cucumbers are harvested when they are just the right size so all the pickles in the jar are as uniform as possible.
