Bread and Butter Pickle
This is my grand mom’s recipe. She was an expert in pickle making and in my home store-bought pickles are not allowed till now. My grandmom is 80 years young now, yet she still loves to make pickles as it is her favorite hobby and her helping hand is myself. So, I have also learned a lot from her and here is the one which she recently prepared.
