Aunt Edna's pickles always turn out right, and are delicious! Several in the family could eat a whole jar or more if you let us! Eat in a minimum one week, though more than two weeks is recommended.

These are amazing! Thanks for your recipe. I also varied by slicing up some jalapenos and putting it in the brine with the cucumber and it was perfect.
