MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 5, 2014

I, like another reviewer, was confused by the 6 cups of veggies versus only 1.5 cups of the vinegar solution. I needed to triple it to cover all of the cucumbers and onions. I also couldn't find celery seed and substituted caraway seed. Fortunately, still turned out awesome. Very tasty. A bit floppy to pick up, but they were still crunchy to bite. I'll definitely be keeping this recipe. Thanks.

Super easy & very tasty! I followed another reviewer's suggestion to use less sugar & cut it in half. The pickles are still sweet & tangy. I also omited the ground cloves since they were alittle too expensive, seems fine without it. We will continue to make these to have around to nibble on. Great snack item!

I've made these for years.Similar to a bread & butter pickle. Lasts until gone. We've still had them for Christmas!
