Excellent. I wish more people realized what a pickle should taste like. I like mine crisp so I ate the whole jar after 3 days and now have to search for more pickling cucumbers.

These were really good and really easy to make. I like my pickles a bit saltier so added just a little bit more salt than indicated. I've made these twice and a teaspoon more of salt is too little and a tablespoon more is too much--so 2 more teaspoons is what I'll be adding when I make them again.

Yum! I've been testing many different pickle recipes and this is by far my favorite. Even my 18 month old agrees. Thanks!!
