These are very good and extremely easy to make! After 1 day they were OK but are really good after about 3 days. I used 4 small pickling cucumbers for 1/2 a recipe and also did not cool the vinegar mixture to room temp. I will make these again - thanks chia!

Wow! These came out so yummy - crisp and vinegary. They have a very nice color from the saffron, which also gives this a subtle,unique flavor. And these were so easy - these will not last 2 weeks in my house, as I suspect we will eat them in just a few days.
