Excellent! Be sure in step #2 to rinse 2-3 x`s not just drain the cucumbers. When making I hesitated thinking I wouldn't have enough liquid but it was perfect! The only change is that I added a clove of garlic per jar. I did a 10 minute water bath to seal. As I type I can hear the jars popping telling me they are sealed! I ended with 4 - 8 ounce jars and 3 - 16 ounce jars. Good and tasty even warm. Can`t wait to try them chilled. Thanks!!
