"These pickles are some of the best I have ever eaten. They're so good and easy to make that you'll want to keep them on hand all the time. My in-laws send over produce just so I'll make more!" —Loy Jones Anniston, Alabama

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 30, 2014

"I had never made any type of pickles before but after reading the reviews, I decided to give it a try. I made half of the amount, using one cup cucumbers and two cups of squash (what I had on hand). I also did not have any mustard seed. They turned out great!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 15, 2013

"What a great way to use some of the numerous cucumbers from my garden! This recipe was easy to make, with ingredients I had on hand. I only used 2/3 cup sugar, used all cucumbers, no squash, and didn't peel the cucumbers. The pickles turned out great! I gave some to friends, who quickly asked for the recipe -- new Taste of Home fans!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 14, 2012

"The only reason I am giving this 4 stars is that it is a bit too sweet for me. I think the next time I will cut the sugar down by half. Otherwise, this is a very simple way to enjoy cucumbers!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 27, 2012

"These were ok. Something seemed to be missing flavor-wise compared to the other pickle recipes I make. I will say it is a great, fast way to use up my overabundant summer squash supply."

MY REVIEW

"Made these the last few summers. Very good. I also canned them this year for latter."
