I think this recipe is a true winner! It has so many of the characteristics of a *great recipe*. It's easy, cheap, quick and, very importantly, it's so easy to adapt to your personal tastes. Don't like sweet? Not too fond of spicy pickles?? All VERY simple corrections to make! You can cut the cuke's any way you like, or not at all! I tried some of each, spears, halves and wholes, and are pleased to see good results with each. The spears were actually yummy (and CRISP!) after only 36 hours. The halves needed a bit more time and the wholes will need at least a week, I figure. For those who want good pickles but don't have everything, don't worry! Here in southern Thailand, many things are impossible to find. Such as pickle spice, dill seeds, mustard seeds and several other things found in other recipes (even canning jars!!). So I did without and it's oh-so-good. Fortunately for us, fresh dill, small cucumbers and garlic are all easily acquired. I also made my own pickling spice as per another user's suggestion. 2 bay leaves ripped up 2 t dry coriander seeds 1 - 2 t lightly pounded black pepper 1/2 t mustard powder dash of cinnamon dash of turmeric I'm sure it could be a bit more complex but it tastes great to me!!
