    I am assuming that this recipe uses apple cider vinegar or white. I am looking forward to making this recipe. Thank you.

    Oh my! I haven't even canned them yet, still soaking in the juice daily. This is day two. I just had to taste a small piece. Wow! I'm in love. I had no idea a cucumber could taste so delicious. I'm going to have to grow extra cucs next year just to make these. I've never heard of these prior to trying this recipe. Oh, I used 12 oz of the red hot candies in mine. I'd consider even upping that a tad, although they are delicious as is. Easy holiday gifts if I'm feeling generous:)

    GATTA LOVE 'EM!!!!! Definitely worth all the effort and time. EVERYONE loves these. I didn't do the boil and soak for 3days, and only did it the one time and they are marvelous!
