These pickles take two weeks in the refrigerator, but are well worth the wait.

Nice pickles thanks! I canned them which is why I'm just now reviewing them. We still have tons of pickles from last summer's canning sessions! I enjoy these and they aren't too difficult but I have to say that our house prefers Bread and Butter Pickles II on this site to these. I think it may be the addition of peppers to the others as well as the different spices that makes it for us but we still enjoy these a lot. Very sweet good pickles for sandwiches or burgers. The onions in these are pretty good too. Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Wish I had processed these so that I could enjoy them longer. I really prefer that vinegar bite. Thought this recipe was a prefect balance between sweet and tart. Will definitely make these again. Read More

Well I just canned these it was an easy recipe however I changed it just a bit. Couldn't find some of the spices it called for so I used pickling spice and then followed the recipe. Then I used the larger mason jars (1liter) so when filling only 1/2 the jar with vinegar mixture then topping off with hot water.... And I will wait an additional 2 wk or so before tasting Read More

This tasted great even after one a couple of days in the jar. I'm sure it would have been better after a couple of weeks. I did use garlic powder because it turned out my garlic was spoiled. Next time I would use less onion because the ratio of onion to cucumbers was not like I liked. I also used powdered cloves because my whole cloves were not to be found. I sliced celery instead of celery seed because the store was out. My 5-year old granddaughter loved it so much I sent a couple of jars home with her. Changes or not it was excellent. I made another batch with fewer onions and plan on making more this summer. Read More
