"I got this recipe from an old family friend. She used to make us these pickles when we were kids. It is a really simple recipe, and the hardest part is not eating the pickles before they are ready. You can add pimentos, sliced bell peppers, or whole garlic cloves to the vinegar solution as alternative options."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/3 cups
peeled and sliced cucumbers
Amazing! Thought I was in my Mom's kitchen! Hubby, being British, asked me to cut the sugar down a bit next time, but for me, they were perfect. Just for the heck of it, I added a tbsp of dill and a tsp of mustard seed (white). This is a top notch recipe! Thanks for the taste of home!
These were pretty good, but even better on the 4th day, when I polished off the small batch I made! Loved how the cuke and onion were soft yet crunchy. I think a little mustard seed would be a nice addition, I'll give it a try next time. Will for sure make again, thanks!
I cut the vinegar with some water and used splenda instead of sugar. The kids ate them like candy!
I used apple cider vinegar because I don't think white should be used for cooking. I cut the sugar in half and they were still sweet. I was in a farm co-op this summer and had a lot fo cucumbers and bell peppers. My boyfriend ate a quart of these a week. They are so wonderful.
Just made my second batch today. First batch I added celery seed and crushed red pepper flakes. I mixed white vinegar, apple cider vinegar and water, half cup each. Today added a red pepper, and a jalapeno pepper trying for a little heat Hate having to wait two days, but worth it.
Love these! I always want a batch of these in the fridge
This is my third time to make these today. My sister in law has a garden, and has been supplying me with cucumbers. My Mom used to make these when I was growing up, and they are yummy! First time made just as recipe stated, The second time I cut the sugar back to one cup just to see what would happen. Still great! I am going to try Agave today in place of the sugar to see what we think. 5 star from the start. My husband will not even wait a day to start eating them, so I am not sure what they would taste like when they are really done!
liked it very much
