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!!!

Thank you for bringing back memories! My mom used to make these when she had too many cukes to can. However, she called them "Preacher Pickles"~
