Bread And Butter Pickles

I was watching Tyler Florence's cooking show on TV a couple of weeks ago. He shared a recipe for Bread and Butter pickles, which was so easy to make that I had to try out the recipe at home. I made a small batch and had the pickles after 2 days in the brine. It tasted really good, I like the freshness and the crunchiness of the pickles. Try it.
