Notes

My grandfather was always looking for recipies for interesting pickles. Most of the time he found them in newspapers. He would make them and give them away to his friends and family. This is one of those recipies. I make them every summer and they are great.

I asked my Mom the same thing. She thought it has something to do with the bread causing the pickles "to work" like they do in a crock. All I know is that they turn out great.

What purpose does the bread serve for these pickles? Sounds good!
