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!
UPDATE: Best dill pickles ever! My 4-yr old just ate 5 in a row. We all love them! Thank you so much!<br/><br/>I chose this recipe because it's easy to adapt according to how many jars you want to make. And, I love Claussen pickles! Hopefully, these are just as good. I did substitute a tbsp. of mixed pickling spices, which included mustard seed, allspice, cloves, bay leaves, and peppercorns instead of measuring each one out. I added the garlic and turmeric as directed and threw in 1/4 tsp. of pickle crisp granules per jar. I'll come back in a few days and see how they taste! :)
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!!!!
Im def. gonna try this recipe for immatation Claussen pickles. However, I am making pickled tomates, like the Famous Chicago Superdog has. I will keep you posted.
Best refrigerator pickles. Lower sodium recipe. Just like Clausen. A nice mixture of spices, vinegar & water. I like to add fresh dill.
After two weeks my pickles are still very cucumbery. Do they just need more time? Or is there something i'm missing
This is a fantastic recipe!! Everyone loves them.
I'm still waiting to hear an answer to the questions asked by Chef#1802967133 sounds great though.
I am so excited to try this recipe. I have a question, Did you let the brine cool down or did you put it in the jars hot? I am thinking if you wait till it cools then your pickles would keep their crunch? Also, did you leave out of refrigerate immediately when cooled?
