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.

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.

Love love love love these pickles!!!! They are a bit salty using the full 2/3 cup, though. Cut it back to 1/2 cup and these pickles are perfection!!!!!!!!!!

I cut this down to 1 quart worth but only used 1 (heaping) Tbsp salt. After sitting for two days they didn't seem very pickle-y so I added another 1/3 cup of vinegar. After another two days, they are better but not my favorite (I've got three other batches of pickles in the fridge right now, all of which I like more I'm sorry to say.) If I make these again I will use equal parts vinegar and water and I think they will be super. ~August 10, 2011. UPDATE: Well, I've let these sit in the brine for another 2 1/2 weeks since my previous review and I have to say I quite like them now. I guess they just needed more time for my taste! Thanks!
