Nice pickles, thanks! I canned them, which is why I'm just now reviewing them. We still have tons of pickles from last summer's canning sessions! I enjoy these, and they aren't too difficult, but I have to say that our house prefers Bread and Butter Pickles II on this site to these. I think it may be the addition of peppers to the others as well as the different spices that makes it for us, but we still enjoy these a lot. Very sweet, good pickles for sandwiches or burgers. The onions in these are pretty good too. Thanks for the recipe!

Didnt like these, sorry. I dont know if its too much vinegar or ? but they came out way too tart. The vinegar flavor was too overpowering..

I didn't use any salt. Didn't have any turmeric....other than those minor adjustments, turned out good.

Wish I had processed these so that I could enjoy them longer. I really prefer that vinegar bite. Thought this recipe was a prefect balance between sweet and tart. Will definitely make these again.

Well I just canned these it was an easy recipe however I changed it just a bit. Couldn't find some of the spices it called for so I used pickling spice and then followed the recipe. Then I used the larger mason jars (1liter) so when filling only 1/2 the jar with vinegar mixture then topping off with hot water.... And I will wait an additional 2 wk or so before tasting
