I used this recipe as I lost mine. I deleted the ginger and used 3 cups of sugar for a double recipe. I also deleted the pickle crisp as I like these pickles a little soft. Some times that stuff makes the pickles rubbery. I will use this recipe again with the adjustments. Read More

I love these pickles and have made them for years. I also add a couple of things but they are great as is in the recipe here. I add 2-3 cut open thai chili peppers to each jar and I love the onions. Sometimes I just can the onions and no cukes in the jar at all as the onions are fantastic when used on hot dogs and burgers and stuff. Read More
