MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 15, 2011

"I actually found this recipe on allrecipes.com. I used some suggestions to replace 1/4 of the sugar with cider vinegar, dissolved the sugar in the vinegars in a saucepan over low heat, soaked the cucumbers in ice water for 30 minutes then drained, and used 2 tsp dried dill and 1 tsp dill seed instead of fresh dill. After 24 hours - disappointing. After 3 days - pretty good! After 6 days - my husband called his mother to tell her how good they were. After 7 days - the entire 1/2 gallon is gone."
