One DD loved these, but the rest of us found them just a bit too tart. I had made a large batch, so I stirred in a little extra water and some sugar (couple TB, I think) and let it sit overnight. The next night, we ALL loved them. Especially the onions, they were just great in this.

Very easy pickle to make. Made recipe as stated. Stayed in the fridge for a while. Nice fast, easy recipe. Would recommend to try.

Omitted the bell peppers because I didn't have any, but otherwise stuck to the recipe exactly. Very tasty and certainly couldn't be any easier! DH really liked them also. Great way to eat up those overabundant summertime cukes. Thanks for posting.

Couldn't be any faster or easier than this. Very zingy as written, you may want to adjust the vinegar-water ratio. I added onions and red pepper and in a couple of hours have a great back of homemade cucumber pickles. Nice one!

Yummy! Really yummy if you use veggies either from your garden or the farmers' market! I replaces two lemon cucumbers for two of the standard cucumbers and used one orange and one yellow bell pepper. The Pucker Power was spot on! Thanks for posting! cg ;)

Ihave never made my own pickles before. IWhen I went to the cupboard there no white vinegar so I substituted red wine vinegar and balsamic. The cucumbers were lovely and crisp and because of the baslamic vinegar they were not too sharp. Can I just add more veggies to the mixture or do I have to throw it out and start again for a new batch?

A quick and easy way to get the taste of home canned cukes on the table. We added onions and red pepper. Next batch will try with some fresh garlic, and sliced carrots and perhaps some zucchini

This is a great recipe for any veggie! I used cukes, vidalia onion and thinly sliced carrots. I liked the tartness of this recipe and did not change the amounts of vinegar, but I do think I might add a little fresh garlic next time!

Oh, Jim - this is fabulous!! I made the recipe exactly as posted except to add a little fresh garlic. I used red bell peppers since they were on sale this week (is $.39 each a good price?). I put everything into my Tupperware marinating container (love that thing!) and let it sit overnight. The next morning I took the whole thing in to my Jazzercise class and you should have seen those ladies go for those cukes (at 7:30am!). Needless to say, I didn't bring anything home with me and I have a ton of recipe requests for Monday night's class. So you will be quite the popular guy, Jim! Thanks so much for posting - I've got cukes coming out of my ears in the garden!!
