This is a very good recipe for sweet pickles.(I think) I have had very good luck with it in my first year for canning. Mine turned out good and crisp. When cutting cucumbers like sweet mixed pickles, I added a little bit of red bell pepper and also a little cauliflower to look like the bought ones. Also taste good too.
