"I got this recipe from an old family friend. She used to make us these pickles when we were kids. It is a really simple recipe, and the hardest part is not eating the pickles before they are ready. You can add pimentos, sliced bell peppers, or whole garlic cloves to the vinegar solution as alternative options."

Amazing! Thought I was in my Mom's kitchen! Hubby, being British, asked me to cut the sugar down a bit next time, but for me, they were perfect. Just for the heck of it, I added a tbsp of dill a...

These were pretty good, but even better on the 4th day, when I polished off the small batch I made! Loved how the cuke and onion were soft yet crunchy. I think a little mustard seed would be a...

I cut the vinegar with some water and used splenda instead of sugar. The kids ate them like candy!

I used apple cider vinegar because I don't think white should be used for cooking. I cut the sugar in half and they were still sweet. I was in a farm co-op this summer and had a lot fo cucumbe...

Excellent. I only used 1/8 cup sugar. Added garlic, and fresh ground black pepper. They were gone in minutes. Tonight I'll add fresh Thai chilies for some heat. YUM

Love these! I always want a batch of these in the fridge. I cut the sugar in half and didn't put in the salt. Instead I added a dash of garlic salt, celery seed, and dill
