"Not difficult to make, and very tasty!! I even made a batch with Splenda for diabetic friends and it was still great. You can also use zuchinni or cucumbers."

"So sweet, so good! I tried this using both summer squash and zucchini. It reminded me a lot of bread & butter pickles. Very easy to make!"

"My husband and I dearly love this pickle! I make it every year when our crookneck squash is plentiful. Everyone I've had try it also loved it, from family & friends to people at my husband's workplace. It looks as good as it tastes too! So easy to make!"
