Absolutely delicious! Make sure to double nad triple the recipe since they'll be eatten up in minutes! I actually used two cucumbers and had liquid to spare. Will try it using three cucs next time per batch. I served them at our Sunday BBQ. They're great alone, on burgers, dogs, sausages, chicken, etc. Thanks for a great recipe.

I had a large amount of cute little pickling cucumbers to use up (7!), and they worked marvelously in this recipe. I didn't increase the marinade amount at all, and let them chill for between 3 and 4 hours. So yummmy! Like thin bread and butter pickles, sweet with a little bite! Thank you!

Loved these cukes! A very refreshing salad and so easy to make! The sweet and sour was right on the money for my family (we all gobbled them up), and the bay leaf and allspice berries provided just a nuance of spice - barely there - but definitely there. Lovely!

Delish and flavorful.
Akvavit, is flavoured with herbs, spices, or fruit oil. like caraway, cardamom, cumin, anise, fennel, and lemon or orange peel.
I wanted that flavor brought though in this recipe so I choose to use juniper, cardamom, grains of paradise, fresh bay leaf and allspice(as called for). I did rinse the salt off the cucumber slices very well before drying. I cut back the sugar to 1/4. Used 1/2 the liquids. And walla so yummy! Thanks.

liked the crispness, but it was just too sweet. We did however manage to eat it all so I rated it no stars as we did like components of it and I also used plain vinegar which may have made quite a difference in taste. I will try a smaller version sometime later on. Thanks though for sharing and will try more of your recipes.
