My grandmother and mother always made this recipe and taught me; however we add dill instead of parsley and sprinkled it with freshly ground black pepper. Sometimes we added finely sliced onions too. I often add alittle more sugar to suit my tastes. It has been a favorite accompaniment of mine to all meat dishes or by itself as an appetizer. I find it best after being refrigerated at least overnight.

Simple and good! I sprinkled paprika on top for a bit of color. I could see these having a few seasonings like onion powder or a dash of cayenne pepper.

I have made something similar for many, many years, I taught my mom, it was one of my daughters favorites so I taught hertoo & my grandaughter loves it too....we use dill..sometimes I " cook" sugar & vinegar,I almost always use dill, usually fresh but in winter dry...although sometimes I add parsley I only add if very fresh from our garden. My Sweedish friends said I basically made it correctly,thank for adding this to our recipe file

There are several recipes for Pickled Cucumbers on this site and although all are a bit different, they are all delicious and serve a purpose of adding a needed variety to your menu for the evening. Just by adding something cold, sweet and a little crispy is a wonderful compliment to color and texture on your plate. I make up this recipe or another very like it, put it all in a jar, seal it and serve it throughout the week, probably 2 or 3 times. Not really as a side dish but more as a garnish, it's just that little something extra that adds a bit of difference and shows that you care.

I followed recipe to a T. First time I've even had pickled cucumbers so I don't know what I'd compare them to. However I thought they could use a bit more sugar, like review had mentioned. I did use fresh dill instead. Also sprinkled paprika, also reviewer suggestion. I'd make it again.
