“Yes, I know it looks like an error in grammer or spelling. It is not! This recipe comes from a cookbook purchased traveling in California. It was well worth the $6 I paid for the entire cookbook. It is a collection of pioneer recipes of homesteaders traveling across the praires and mountains to California. The original recipe is called "Fanny's Pickles". I just added my best humor to the name of the recipe. Very easy to do, not specfic rules, sizes, or procedures. Try it, vary it, but always enjoy! These are bread and butter pickles or with a few hot chilis and not slicing the cucumber, you have Bloody Mary Pickles.”
