Eight-Day Icicle Pickles Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

I loved them! These pickles are well worth the time. I put more blue than green food colouring to copy the old copper colour! Who wants to use a copper scrubby or copper sulfate, lol! Thanks for the great recipe, I looked and looked for one! These make wonderful little gifts and look great with pared with the Christmas red pickles!

My cucumbers have been very bitter this year and I hated to waste them all to the compost heap so I tried your recipe in the hope of salvaging them. Now that they are canned and cooling on the counter, I am prepping for the next batch to which I plan to add some hot peppers for a little zest. Not only did your recipe eliminate the bitterness, the pickles are yummy! I am a little bummed because all my jars sealed so I won't be putting a dud in the fridge to snack on. I need more jars :)

I just tried these for the first time and I am a little disappointed. They are not near as good as my great-grandmother's recipe for icicle pickles. It was fun to try a new version and do a side by side comparison, but from now on I will stick with our old favorites (which takes longer and has a stronger syrup). I followed the recipe except that I omitted the food coloring, as I didn't think it was healthy to add the extra dye.
