Luisa is looking for: (1 recommendation)
I'm looking for a pickle recipe that my grandmother used to make. She called them Stickles. They were made with small peeled cucumbers cut lengthwise. They were crisp and sweet and pale green. Sometimes she even put in a drop of green food coloring. I lost my copy and would be grateful if anyone has this recipe to share. Thanks.

I looked at the recipe Elle chose, and I would go with that. Another name for the pickles is Icicle Pickles. The important ingredient is the pickling lime. I have seen people add either green or red coloring, because they tend to be Christmas pickles. Whenever you have them, enjoy!!!

Elle and Sueb, thank you so much for your help. I'd googled "stickles" with no success, and didn't think of adding "pickles" to the search. ;-) This is exactly what I was looking for, and I'm happy that I'll be able to make my Nana's favorite pickles again. Cooking and canning and sharing recipes were things we loved together. Thanks again!
