    I make pickles all the time,  never done bread and butter but have made dill. limed, sweet, cubed, relishes etc.  Love them in fresh salads and sandwiches.  Good luck and take a picture or two for us.

    I want to try some too.  Hopefully someone will post something that has worked for them.

    I made some sour pickles.  They are like ones in a deli -- brined and fermented.  Turned out great -- even my eight year old princess loves them.
