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