For the past few years, my family has enjoyed growing cucumbers in our garden and making homemade bread and butter pickles (my favorite) using my grandma’s recipe. Unfortunately, we were unable to grow cucumbers this year, so we didn’t make any homemade pickles. We were disappointed when we ran out of all of our homemade pickles, and we had to go to the store to buy some. Today, as we were looking for pickles at the store, my daughters were really excited to find Mt. Olive pickles on the shelves. (The Mt. Olive pickle company has been selling Pickles, Pickles, I Like Pickles in their gift shop in North Carolina, which I wrote about here and here.) Needless to say, we had to buy a jar of the Mt. Olive bread and butter pickles to sample. Even though we didn’t wait for them to chill in the refrigerator before eating them, they were delicious! They may not be our homemade bread and butter pickles, but I would recommend these yummy pickles.
