Wonder Pickles

READY IN: 40mins

This recipe came from my former MIL who just turned 90 years old. She can run circles around me. She made this recipe for me about 30 years ago. I turned my nose up at them until she made me try one, then I was hooked.

Made a batch of these just for fun and find I really love them ! Very easy to do ! They still need to "sit" for a day or two yet but , I just can't leave 'em alone ! Thanks for sharing !
