Wow, what a pickle recipe.

Top Review by Jan Marie

This recipie is incomplete. I started making it and it doesn't tell you what to do with the vinegar, salt or the onions. I gave up and made another recipie. looks like a great recipie but I didn't want a disaster by adding the wrong ingredient at the wrong time.
