I never made pickles before and was skeptical about this too easy to be true recipe, HOWEVER...this recipe is unbelievably good. Fabulous, like bread and butter pickles...only better! I made an...

I used a cider vinegar and found the taste to be way to strong for me. I've gota similar recipe that uses white vinegar instead. That one calls for 3 days in the refrigerator but I'm not sure it...

Excellent recipe! My whole family loves these pickles. Very quick and easy to make, too.

What is nice is that the pickles stay crunchy, as well as taste great! I omitted the onions. Did not have mustard seed, so used half as much mustard powder. Added 1/2 tsp celery seed and 1/2 ...

Salty, but yummy and simple. Next time I make these I will cut back on the salt. I also like my pickles a little zesty, so I added a little crushed red pepper. Next time I'll add a bit more.

This is by far the best sweet pickle recipe. It is so easy and tastes great. Hats off to subscriber.

I had to double the boiled mix in order to get enough to completely submerge the cucumbers and onions.

Nice sweet tangy flavor which doesn't cover the flavor of the cukes. I use Baggs Apple Cider Vinegar which tends to be sweeter.

I made these pickles for the first time last summer. My family and friends can't wait for my first batch this year! The recipe is simple and the pickles are delicious.
