This recipe was so good and easy. I only used half the amount of sugar and I did not have the celery seed. I will definitely make this again.

These are amazing!!! I used only half the sugar as I like mine a little on the tart side, and a sprinkling of ground celery seed as I did not want them too sweet. I also used kosher flake salt as opposed to regular salt. I can see these appearing on my table QUITE often, Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

I had this recipe years ago and lost it. I can't thank you enough for sharing it with us. As soon as I saw your post, I knew it was the one I had. Everyone goes crazy when they taste these and asks for the recipe.

Yummy! We've been enjoying these every week this summer. My CSA farmer brings us the biggest but sweetest cucumbers and this is how I prepare them. Thanks for a great, simple, delicious recipe!

What I used: 1 rather large cucumber, 1 tiny onion, a little less than 1/4 c. sugar (based on reviews), caraway seed (I read the wrong label), celery seed and Heintz apple cider vinegar. This is good...my first trial was sweet, but had I used 2 cucumbers as suggested, maybe it would not have been. My Gram always makes something like this in the summer and I am wondering if maybe she uses white vinegar instead. I wanted to give it a try and although it wasn't exactly what I had in mind, it was yummy!!

YUM! I planted only 3 cuke plants this spring, and I'm hunting for good ways to use the bounty! This is a really good way! I didn't have celery seed, so I used a little bit of celery salt, omitted the reg salt, and grated a small rib of celery into the mix. Used Stevia instead of sugar.

Can we say "addictive?" I was tapping my fingers waiting for at least an hour to pass so I could devour them. :) Two things I have to note: (1) I saw someone's comment that they were a bit sweet, so I didn't add the whole 1/4 cup of sugar. (2) When my grandma made these (or something very, very similar, she had the cukes all completely submerged. I was a bit worried that they might lose their crispiness if they weren't completely submerged, but I wasn't sure whether, to get them submerged, I should up the vinegar (significantly) or add water. So I just let it be. It turns out, they are still plenty crispy without having been completely submerged. (Just in case anyone else wonders about that.)
