What type cucumber seeds should I grow for Bread & Butter Pickles?
I have always wanted to make Bread & Butter pickles so I guess I will do it this year. When I was in grade school Grandmother made the best bread & butter pickles. She won 1st prize at the country fair several times. She said, I have to grow a certain type cucumber to make good pickles.
I have no clue what type cucumber that is?
I remember she picked cucumbers early every morning they had to be the exact size I don't know what size that is?
I also remember Grandmother saying, after measuring the length of each cucumber then picking it and slicing it 50% have to be thrown away because seeds inside are too large or too small.
She made pickles in a 10 gallon stone crock in the kitchen, it set in the kitchen for a whole month. Then she put them in jars.
I was in grade school and never saw how pickles were made but I remember how the whole house smelled like pickles for a month every summer and how good they tasted.
How many plants to I need?
How many cucumbers do I need for about 10 pints and 10 quart jars of pickles?
Who is making Bread & Butter Pickles with a good proven recipe?
