Excellent recipe - just opened a jar from the first batch we made and we were so excited about them that we are making a second batch today. A bit tricky to follow the recipe as written as the steps don't quite make sense but after rereading for a third time we got it done.

Will update when I get to taste these in a couple of months. But for now, these were so easy to make. I used dried peppers because I don't like playing with fresh ones. My mouth waters just looking at the jars, and I can't wait to taste them. Thanks for posting Monica.

Last year I was searching for a hot and spicy pickle recipe and I came across this one. I had never made pickles before and when I found this one and made the pickles everyone loves them. In fact I have a good friend who just loves these pickles, infact she always puts her order in to buy 4- quart size jars about every 2 months. I have to say that your husband Mondo is a very smart and creative person. Thank you so much for the great recipe.

These pickles are very good! Stayed crunchy which is very important to me. Any suggestions on how to make them hotter? My batch (followed the recipe exactly) was more "black pepper" tasting than "chili pepper". Would like more bite.

We just made our 4 batch of this recipe we LOVE it!! I was wondering if you had a pickled okra recipe?

I didn't change a thing! These pickles have a nice spicy flavor, but they are not too hot-- everyone will love them. I used dried pasillo peppers. I'm making another batch while there are still a few summer cucumbers around!
