Refrigerator Bread and Butter Picklessubmitted by Joann Kilmer of Madelia -”These bread and butter pickles are a wonderful little side dish to set out with just about any meal, but our first love will always be adding them to sandwiches. They are great also if you serve deviled eggs, and have a small bowl of them to serve with the eggs.”
