I'm a Claussen pickle addict. I tried Claussen Kosher Pickle Copycat Claussen kosher pickle copycat and found them to be way too salty. Inedibly so. I just made a batch of this recipe with high hopes. I will rate it in a few days.
*** Update ***
After sitting for 5 days these pickles are on their way to pickle greatness! They still have a slight cucumber flavor but I think that makes them taste really fresh. I actually like these better than Claussen!!!
These are the best pickles I have tried in years! I make pickles every year and throw them out. These were keepers!
Thank you!!!!!.... Thank You!!!!!!!......Burger Monster you are the best...These are actually better that Claussen....I will be making these always...BEST REVIEW....AND UPDATE!!!!
