"I tried this recipe about a month ago. Since then, I have made two more batches. The cucumbers keep coming, even now in October. My first batch, I made as is. Second batch I grew bolder because of the success of the first. So, for the second and third batches I added 10 whole garlic cloves and 3 thinly sliced jalapeno peppers (with seeds in tact) and reduced the sugar to 2 cups. They also turned out great. My husband and I love sweet/hot. It did not disappoint. Thank you for this very easy recipe. I even threw in some thinly sliced carrot for color. By the way.....the onions do not turn yellow from the turmeric because you put the turmeric in the sugar/vinegar mixture."

"These are just so good I had to make two batches. I added some coriander and sweet peppers from the garden. Well worth the effort."
