    BeachGirl's Note:

    A sweet, crunchy pickle with a slightly tangy bite - but not really hot. These luscious pickles take 3 days from start to finish; however, total time spent on preparation and cooking is less than 1 hour per day - under 3 hours total. Their excellent flavor makes them well worth the effort. I have to hide them to make them last all year long! Labeled and wrapped with a pretty bow, they make great hostess gifts. NOTE: Pickling lime is a powdered food grade hydrated lime manufactured by Ball and other companies. It makes pickles crunchy/crispy.

      I canned these this summer and just cracked one open. Very crisp and tangy. Nervous about using pickling lime and not getting it rinsed off well enough but they turned out very good. If you like tangy, you'll love these.
