Bread and Butter Pickles

Sharing is caring!

Bread and Butter Pickles are a favorite to have on my table but especially at Christmas time.

My recipes are grain free, refined sugar free, and many are dairy free. I am on a journey to a healthier me. After attending a seminar with a functional doctor the information that was shared resounded with me and I began a dietary journey. I soon became a patient of the functional doctor and after looking at my labs he put me on a grain free and refined sugar free diet. At first, I was depressed because the only recipes and food I could find were bland and had no flavor. I started my journey to write my own recipes. Most items that are on the shelves of grocery stores as most items have ingredients in them that I cannot eat. If I like something I am often inspired to create my own recipe of it.

I am trying to learn how to format recipes. It is a slow process and hopefully, I will learn a quicker way to do so in time. Please bear with me as I try to format my recipes.

I have been so spoiled the last couple of weeks as my husband has had time off of work. He will be going back to work soon and I am going to miss the heck out of him. He has been spoiling me by cleaning the house and doing laundry. I am so blessed to be married to him. I often go out to my vehicle and find he has filled my gas tank up so I don’t need to go to the gas station. He surprises me with little kindnesses all the time. I know he is a gift from God. I used to pray as a child that I would have a blessed marriage as my parents had a rocky relationship. God blessed me more than I thought possible.

I almost always have Bread and Butter pickles on my Christmas table. I was sad when I looked at the ingredients in the store. But then I thought why not try to make a batch myself. I like doing small batches of pickles, jams, jelly etc. I only made a one-quart jar and then it is finished I can always make another quart of pickles. These pickles are really yummy.
