An old favorite pickle recipe, bread and butter pickles combine tartness with just the right amount of sweetness. If you are tired of dills this is a nice change of pace for pickle lovers.
The recipe starts with 8 pounds of sliced cucumbers. There are about 2 (4-5 inch) cucumbers in a pound, so 8 pounds would be around 16 cucumbers.
Depending on cucumber size and how tightly you pack the jars, you should get about 4 sliced cucumbers in a pint jar. However, you may get more or less. So, plan on having an extra jar or two available.
