A truly piquant pickle that will satisfy those of us who have a loose sweet tooth. I have been looking for a truly flavorful pickle recipe, not sweet, but not just spicy, either. The key is the variety of ingredients, not just cutting down on the sugar. Only 24 hours in the refrigerator, and they're ready for snacking. Pucker up!

  • Cut cucumbers into even spears and pack into a 1-liter, large-mouthed glass jar. Add onion slices, dill sprigs, and garlic. Pour cooled vinegar mixture over cucumbers in the jar to cover completely. Seal with a lid and refrigerate for 24 hours before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can cut the cucumbers into rounds, if you prefer.
