      These are excellent! Taste just like Claussen. I tried with regular cucumbers sliced because that is what I had on hand the first time and it was good but when I made them with pickling cucumbers it made all the difference... very crunchy. With the second and third batches I double and chopped the garlic and used fresh dill that was chopped up and no dill dill flowers couldn't find any. The chopped dill and the extra chopped garlic gave the pickles even more flavor. Bonus...the pickled garlic is delicious in salads ,on sandwiches etc. I've made 16 jars in 2 1/2 weeks and all but 8 are left. So be prepared to make plenty...or hide them :)

      I couldn't find dill flowers I added some italian cherry peppers for some extra kick. My family and friends love these pickles!

      I made these yesterday, "crock" style in a container on the counter (pack the container, boil the water vinegar and salt to make a brine, and pour over the contents of the container). I am sure I added more garlic, and used canning instead of kosher salt. I chunked some cucumbers and left others whole (mini or persian cukes). See, you start "tasting" the smaller pieces first then move to the whole cukes which take longer to be ready. I snitched a piece today, and man oh man! THIS IS THE RECIPE. I am not sure any will make it to the fridge. For a true Claussen taste, one might want to add some pickling spices, but these are excellent as they are. Thank you selooj!
