    TimUwe's Note:

    These are an easy-to-make pickle that are tangy. In my humble opinion, much better than store-bought. You can taste the garlic and other spices. The nice thing about this recipe is it is fast and easy to modify to your taste. Cooking time is refrigeration time.

      Fantastic pickles! I used 3 fresh dill fronds, 1/2 tsp peppercorns, and only about 1 Tbsp salt during step one. My cukes were a little large so I could only get four in the jar (and I had to cut all but one in sixths instead of quarters). After adding the brine to the packed jar, I had about 1/3 cup extra brine which I had to discard. Otherwise followed the recipe as written. Thanks so much for sharing!
