      I've now made two batches of these. I didn't have pickling spices, so (altering a recipe for pickling spices on here) I used a touch of fennel seed, a few coriander seeds, a few peppercorns, a dash of red pepper flakes, and a bit over 1/2 teaspoon mustard seed (the 1/2 teaspoon called for in the pickle recipe plus a bit more to cover for the pickling spices). This is a great gift as well as a great treat for yourself. They are edible within 12 hours of refrigeration, but the longer they chill, the better they are.

      Very easy to make and didn't take alot of time. I had too many cucumbers and no idea what to do with all of them. This was the perfect answer. Oh, and quite tasty too!
