    Swan Valley Tammi's Note:

    A delicious sweet pickle, this recipe comes from my mom who got it from a dear old friend of hers from church. The original recipe doesn't seem to have had a title because we've always just called them 'Mrs. Fast Pickles.' Mrs. Fast passed away this last year, but she will be lovingly remembered by my mother, who saw her as a surrogate grandmother, and by myself, who also sort of 'adopted' her as a grandmother. (Cooking time includes standing time)

      Yum! Thanks for sharing, it's a lovely recipe. I've had so many cucumbers this year I decide to try them using your recipe. I've given some of the pickles away to friends who devoured them!! One of my friends husbands commented that he can't find anything like this in the shop's. I'm not supprised (nothing like home made). My other friends finished them in 2 days!! I did cut the sugar down to 10 cups, and I didn't use the alum. tasted GREAT!!! Better go I've got more soaking. Thanks again
