"This recipe ROCKS!! I stumbled upon it yesterday and had to try it. I had an English cuke and some onion that needed to be used, so I used 'em. Easy peasy recipe and yummy to boot!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 15, 2011

"Because I don't like sweet pickles, I omitted the sugar and added fresh dill. This recipe is great because now I don't have to heat up the house to make pickles.  I also made a bigger batch, so I didn't have to make them as often."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 29, 2010

"I have been making these pickles for a few years. I can't keep them in the fridge once they are made because my kids eat them that fast."
