LOVE these pickles! They're easy to make and so tasty! I've made this several times now and reduce the salt to 1/2 cup, makes enough brine for 5-6 quarts. My friends and family love them!

WOW, these are amazing pickles. Very glad I chose this recipe as a way to use up a bunch of cucumbers. Super easy to make and they have the best flavor.

Update: I've made the recipe 3 times now, using cucumbers, green beans and asparagus. All were excellent. The last batch I even reduced the salt and they were still good. Everyone wants the recipe.

So good! I was looking for a recipe that didn't use sugar and this was perfect. I used sea salt and decreased it to 1/2 cup. There was enough brine for 5 quarts of pickles.
