 A Pickle from The Great Depression

Every Sunday, Grandma would would make me a warm ham sandwich with a slice of cheese, a little mayo and her famous Bread & Butter Pickles while Grandpap would fall asleep in his chair after hours of fidgeting with the TV Antennae. 
They were a holdover from The Great Depression when her mother would serve them to her on buttered bread.  
During World War II, she began making them with fresh produce from the Victory Garden. While Grandpap toiled at the mill making steel for the war effort, she tended the garden and put up produce for winter.  President Wilson said, “Food will win the war.” and Grandma took that to heart.  Production was always higher when Grandma sent her Bread & Butters for lunch.
The garden had ceded most of it’s ground to green lawn by the time I came around and the field behind her house became a grocery store after the war, but she still grew cucumbers and made enough to last the year.  These pickles were just better than what she could buy in the store!  
 Lucky for you, we have her recipe!

    These pickles are just like my granny used to make. Nice that they have some crunch and aren't soggy. Good to give as gift. Satisfied.

    We usually buy the sweet & tart heirloom pickles. They are delicious and I have to buy several jars because the family eats them as a snack -- they don't even wait for a hamburger, sandwich or hotdog to pull out the jar and start eating them. Shipping is packed well and the package arrives quickly with all jars intact. We started with one; now we are up to six jars an order. The handwritten note on the receipt is a nice touch too.
