This one of our family's favorite pickles that Mom made each year. They are great on hamburgers or right out of the jar.

Love these pickles! I meant to review this recipe when I first made it in October, but will do so now my second time around. The first time I sliced the cucumbers thin, using my 7 cup food processor. I used smaller cucumbers. Today, I used the larger, seedless, burpless cucumbers so cut the slices a bit thicker and by hand. Delicious pickles thick or thin! I used a bit less onion and added 4 hot peppers, diced to both batches... put the filled jars in a canner hot bath for 10 to 15 minutes. Thanks, Loretta in Louisiana, for your Mom's great recipe.
