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.

We felt that the salt was too high in this recipe. We liked the flavor imparted by the cider vinegar. I did add some pickle spice mix which includes coriander, bay, hot peppers, and allspice, and I also added some fresh lemon basil.
