I made these with garden cukes and dried dill. Great flavor, very vinegary. I may add some extra water or ice next time, to cut down on the vinegar flavor. But the texture and seasoning was perfect. Thanks for posting!

These were great - a lot of flavor in just a little time! I didn't have fresh dil so I added extra dried dill. It worked just fine. Thanks, Sista!
