I liked this recipe, because I didn't have to do a whole bunch of jars at one time, I could go out and pick a few cucumbers and do one jar at a time.

Made these pickles several days ago, can't happen but notice that the garlic has turned blue in the jar? I am sure it is okay but have never seen this happen before. I did notice on the picture that the garlic also looks blue. Also the recipe does not say how long to wait before tasting.

Just what I was looking for, a 1 jar recipe for pickles. This is a nice and easy pickle recipe. I tried the pickles after two weeks of resting and was very pleased with them. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
