"Delicious! A quick and easy garlicky dill. We didn't wait 24 hours though, they're great served right away. I sliced mine on a mandolin into 'coin's, as well as the onions. So good!"

"This pickle per recipe tastes like a cocktail onion. It would be similar to a bread and butter pickle, but is stronger and more acidic. I agree with posts saying that you need to reduce the vinegar and sugar."

"These were really good using the corrected recipe from the website, not the one from the magazine. Kroger had a large (1gal) clear Mason canister for less than $12 which worked perfectly."

"These are delicious! Dilly and a little sweet- with a great crunch. I cheated and used jarred garlic and my cucumbers were small so I cut them in half."

"These are very easy to make and very delicious. I did use less sugar and salt, and added more garlic as folks suggested. I didn't eat them for over a week so the flavors blended well. I also made a quarter of the recipe, and made them again when the first batch was almost gone. Thanks!"

"Great and easy. My friends want the recipe. It could use less sugar and salt. The longer they sit the better they get. Crunchy too! I will make them again."
