My MIL shared this recipe with me 30 years ago and taught me how to can & freeze.This recipe is a family favorite & is being passed generation to generation. Don't let the process scare you,the pickles are well worth the effort. Delicious in potato or tuna salad. Great on burgers. I make a "pickle tray" for covered dish dinners and these are the first to go and they receive many compliments. I think people like them because they are crisp.
