Very tasty and VERY sweet. I'll reduce the amount of sugar in the future, but then, we've been trending toward less sweet these days (so this is a personal taste preference). Just good, old fashioned comfort food pickles that folks have been making for years. Thanks, bhoff, for sharing Buryl's recipe.
