Really tasty! I added some sliced bell peppers, too. The onions and garlic really make these pickles stand out! Thanks for posting! Made for the Spanish forum's Garlic Tag.
Wow! What flavor! I only had one BIG hothouse cucumber to use, so I adjusted the recipe to suit it. I used a quart canning jar to put it all in. Added a couple extra little special ingredients. But the vinegar/sugar mixture with it's spices was SO flavorful. Has that wonderful sweet/sour thing going on. Another winner Kittencal!!!
Easy and good! I halved the recipe and waited 2 days to taste. Thank you Kitten!
