      What a fabulous recipe! Did add a heaping teaspoon of coriander & about a 1/4 cup sliced yellow jalapenos & a 2 inch knob of thinly sliced fresh ginger with sliced cucumbers but otherwise followed recipe as written. Total keeper! Thank you for a wonderful full-flavored but not overly sweet or sour recipe! Used white vinegar. Doubled recipe for 7 quarts! Yum! Can't wait to try this winter on a ham & cheese sandwich or on the side of a ploughman's lunch! KEEPER!

      These are wonderful! Not too salty, not too sweet. I added some green and red bell pepper and some coriander seeds like one reviewer mentioned.

      I was afraid at first they might be too salty because I rinsed and rinsed and they were still very salty all the way through. But once you get them brined and cured overnight everything balances out and they're perfect.

      Thank you Barb. I love your recipes!
