Give them time -- they're terrific! I made them exactly according to the recipe. After a week, we cracked open a jar and the consensus was that they were too salty and not enough pickle-y. After another week, the pickley-ness has improved dramatically. They're crisp and crunchy and taste like pickle barrel pickles from the deli. Mmm.
Absolutely delicious!! I have a great crop of cucumbers from my garden this year & this recipe has saved me! The ratio between salt and vinegar is perfect. The pickles come out crisp, briny and are refreshing!! I added jalapeño to several jars and couldn't keep those in the fridge!! Have been searching for the perfect balance of flavors & this simple recipe is a winner!!!
Really Great. Nice and crisp with just the right amount of garlic and dill. I used seedless cucumbers qne the worked just fine.
I tested this recipe and another called "spicy refrigerator dill pickles". This one was horrible. Salty and nothing else. These aren't really pickles, they're just salty cucumbers. If you'll notice, the people giving these good reviews altered the recipe.
I made Kittencal"s easy refrigerator kosher garlic dill pickles last year and am making them again this morning.<br/><br/>They are fantastic! So much easier then canning. Thanks Again for this wonderful recipe.
I'm revising my previous review as the pickles tasted better the next day, day 8. They're still a bit salty for me but the hubby likes them. I had also added some red pepper flakes. In the next batch I'm trying a bit more vinegar and a less salt and some sugar, we'll see.
Amazing!!! I am a pickle lover, and when I read that someone said they tasted like Claussens (my fav pickle ever) I had to make these! They are just like them, so tasty!!! I am one happy girl! I made them last night and I cant stay out of the jar. Thankfully I made 3 jars so I will definitely wait to try some after 7 days or longer too. Thanks for the great recipe!
Yet another fabulous recipe from Kitten. My husband is a food snob......so particular. He loves these pickles! We all do. On my second batch right now. Had to get a bigger pickle jar....thanks Kitten
Fabulous recipe! I, just like some other reviewers doubled the vinegar as well as adding the brine hot. 1/4" thick slices surprisingly were still crunchy without adding alum or grape leaves. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
I love these!!!! Made just as written and found them to be delicious
