    Good Ol' Fashioned Bread & Butter Pickle Slices

    What is it about Bread & Butter Pickles? Some people tell me they only like Dill Pickles, but when I give them a little taste of my Bread & Butter Pickle Slices, they light up right away.

    Is it the crispy-crunch?

    The harmonic blend of sweet & savory?

    Maybe it's the nostalgia factor.

    I know for me it's all three of these things.

    The Tiniest Pickling Cucumber Ever!


    That's right. It's a tiny cucumber. I found it in with my latest batch of pickling cukes and I couldn't resist snapping a photo of it.

    This is your last reminder from me that pickling cucumber season is almost over. You'd better hurry up and get your fresh cukes and start pickling. Now. If you want to have to have a pickles in your pantry all year 'round, n-o-w is the time to get busy!

    So far this year I've turned bucketfuls of cukes into Blue Ribbon DillsDeli-style Dill Spears and Bread & Butter Pickle Slices and I know that here in Western Washington Duris Cucumber Farm will only have fresh-picked-daily pickling cucumbers for another week or two.

    As the Roman poet Horace famously said "Carpe Diem".

    Maybe I should say, "Carpe Cucumbers"!
