Reviews for Microwave Pickles
"I am known as a non-cook, but these looked so simple I thought "what the heck, it's only a few ingredients." I was shocked!! They actually turned out great! They tasted ALMOST like the prize-winning bread and butter pickles a dear friend used to make. Even a friend who caters wants a jar. I will be making these again!??????????????"
"Highly recommended if you love sweet pickles."
