Oh my. I made these pickles last year and honestly sort of forgot about them as they got pushed to the back of the pantry. I found them this summer when I was organizing my canning jars but I wasn't in a hurry to open them since I figured they'd be mushy after waiting a year. I'm starting to run out of canning jars as we go through the summer gardening season, so I thought I'd try them and if they were soft I'd just dump them and free up the jars. Nope... they were fabulous. Still very crispy and the flavor is excellent. This is a great recipe, and I followed it almost to the letter. I'm not a big clove fan, so I just added one clover per pint jar that I made and it added a nice subtle hint of clove, which was plenty for me. I love the cider vinegar and turmeric flavors together. Definitely a keeper, and as berserk as my cucumbers are growing this year, I'm sure I'll be making more of them and NOT waiting a year to eat them.
