      These are delicious. They are garlicky with a hint of sweetness. My brother loved the flavor so much that when he finished his jar, he drained the brine from his jar of store bought pickles and replaced it with the leftover brine from these pickles, trying to give the store bought ones some of the great flavore. Try to buy your cukes as fresh as possible and start processing them as soon as you get home. It makes a difference.

      This was excellent! Perfectly easy to make and super delicious! I love the taste of this 'Uncle Bill's Dill Pickles'! This recipe is very simple, fast, and most important healthy too! Is there anything else better? I don't think so! I wanted to watch taste and ate its little. Needless to say, I was cheering happily - I can not wait for one week more to come! But I endure it. I intend to make 'Stuffed Dill Pickles' with this next. It is I'm a very pleasure. Thank so much for posting.
