I am so excited!  This year we have decided to grow cucumbers.  I am actually using the “royal we”.  In reality I’m not doing anything.  My husband is growing them for me.  He loves to garden, and I hate it.  I don’t know why.  You would think that I would love it; since I love to cook with fresh ingredients.  My husband loves to garden, because it reminds him of his Mom.  Sadly she passed before we had met, so I never got the chance to know her.

I have seen her magnificent gardens at his father’s apartment in Singapore.  Wow!  She had a seriously green thumb.  There are loads of orchids hanging  off an overhang.  She has a large plant she grew from a clipping she had cut while visiting the Biltmore Estates.  She carried it all the way home to Singapore and planted it. The plant clipping would have died long before I even got it home.

Last year we had fantastic luck with jalapeno, basil and tomatoes.  I am really hoping to see the cucumbers do well this year.  Of course, it is somewhat dependent on me remembering to water  them when my husband is on a business trip.  If it doesn’t talk, meow or bark, I cannot remember to take care of it.  They really need to invent a plant that will tell you when it needs water.  I might be successful with a plant like that.  There is still a chance I could still kill it.  I would probably over water it.

I am really excited about the cucumbers as  we eat a lot of them.  Plus I have been wanting to make my own pickles.  In fact, I have pickled so many different vegetables, but not cucumbers.  I don’t know why.  However, I am glad I finally made them.  First I started with my favorite kind, bread and butter pickles.  I love the sweet and tang all in one bite.  Even though pickles are usually low in calorie, bread and butter pickles are significantly higher because of the amount of sugar used in making them.

An easy solution to that was to swap the sugar for SPLENDA® Sweeteners.  SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetener  adds the right amount of sweetness without the calories. It worked like a charm and is so versatile.  Now I can enjoy these delicious pickles as a snack any time I like.  They will last in the refrigerator for weeks.  It is going to be a vegtable pickling summer here.  Try it for yourself and enjoy some No Sugar Added Bread and Butter Pickles for a healthy snack.

  4. My mom made cucumber pickles in season as I was growing up. Great memories of a busy kitchen. Such a great idea as a snack. I've always added them to relish trays for parties and diced them up to mix into egg salad and tuna salad. So many ways to use them.

  6. Bread and butter pickles are my favorite! I've never made them before, but yours look yummy and your photos are beautiful!

  11. I love having a garden, but kind of hate taking care of it. I wish my husband loved to garden! I used to hate pickles (do not judge!) but now I want to grow cucumbers to make my own!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Kacey, After making my own, I can see why you would fall in love with pickles made from cucumbers you grew. I can't wait for ours. Thanks for visiting Food Done Light today, Christie

  15. I've been wanting to make bread ad butter pickles fr a while now, and you've just reminded me of that. thanks for the great recipe and the inspiration!
  16. I've always wanted to make pickles but haven't gotten around to doing it yet. Bread and Butter Pickles are my favorites. Your husband sounds a lot like mine, my husband loves to do the gardening. He set up a herb garden for me and a few tomato plants. If I stepped in to help, I'm sure they would die.
  17. Nothing is better than using fresh ingredients from your own garden! Your pickles look delicious and would make great food gifts!
  18. :) I can't help but chuckle. We must be related. ;) My dad and mom are such super gardeners and I have a brown thumb. I hate that I am no good at gardening because I love that fresh produce at my fingertip. I grew up eating home canned pickles., and your recipe looks delicious and brings back those memories of the day when they were at my fingertips. lol
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Shelby, I have given up on gardening. I'll just be happy to cook with whatever my hubby grows for me :)

  20. Erica (@Erica's Recipes) says
    I have never seen such photogenic pickles! I am actually not a fan of pickles, but I do LOVE bread and butter pickles. Making them at home sounds fantastic.
  21. Jennifer says
    D you happen to know the sodium content of this recipe? Love bread and butter pickles but the jars from the store are so high. In sodium. I have to watch my sodium intake as well.
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Jennifer, I don't know exactly. I usually use www.myfitnesspal.com for calories and such. They will figure out the sodium for you, but I don't know sodium as well as I know nutritional value so I do not know how accurate it is. I am also not sure how much the cucumbers absorb and how much is washed off. Sorry I cannot give the specifics. If I come across a low-sodium version, I will let you know. Thank you for visiting Food Done Light, Christie
  22. Who doesn’t love pickles – and low calorie bread and butter ones at that! These are probably easy to make a large batch and keep them right?
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Dave, These would be perfect for a large batch. They will keep in your refrigerator for quite a while.
  23. When I was a teenager, a friend of my mom made homemade pickles but spicy. What would you add to get them to another level?
