This was my first attempt at making pickles, and I can't believe how well they turned out. Super yummy. Boyfriend loved them. Watch out---addictive!
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!
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.
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.
These taste even better after a day or two in the fridge. I won't buy jar pickles any more!
