Jan, the pickles will be ready to eat in about 2 weeks. I like to chill them before eating. Enjoy!!

How simple! I cut my cukes into spears and they look beautiful. Can't wait to taste them. Whats a reasonable waiting period?

I just tried them after having them sit for about 2 weeks and they taste just like the sour pickles my Grandmother used to make. How long should they sit before eating? I usually wait a good month.

Once again, I have made this recipe with great success! It's such a simple recipe and the results are fabulous. I do want to make a suggestion to others trying this: Instead of using a clove of garlic, I used 1 tsp. garlic flakes, which I purchased at the store. This seems to add a more pungent garlic taste than the clove of garlic. My family requests these be brought to all family functions now, and I am "required" to bring them to my mother every time I visit (so I make a lot of them!). They are Excellent!!

I have finally succeeded in making dill pickles! I used too much dill, though. I only had the foliage. Nest time I'll use dill seed.

I'm not sure what I did wrong but I made this recipe twice this summer and followed the directions to a tee. Both batches resulted in very weak brined pickles that ended up going to waste -even after a 6 week wait. By far the easiest dill pickle recipe I've ever come across though.

I apologize for the negative review but these were not tasty. We followed the directions precisely, but even a year later they are bland and boring. Even the vinegar taste is weak. JMO
