I agree that this recipe needs rinsing however I did not find the pickles to be inedible. I believe this would be a five star recipe if careful rinsing was included in the directions.

After you cook in the brine, drain and rinse, rinse, rinse. I am hoping that the word rinse was left out accidentally in the directions. If you rinse, this recipe has a really good flavor. I used white vinegar and it worked great.

This is way too salty. I would cut the salt by a lot. And add a rinse of the brine. My Grandmother's recipe is very similar but it calls for a rinse of the brine after the soak and an additional two hour soak in cold water - rinsing again and then combining the dry ingredients - then wet - pouring over cukes and bringing to a boil.

Way too salty, and the use of apple cider vinegar and pearl onions made it much more expensive to make than my usual recipe (which uses diced onions and white vinegar). Perhaps it would improve it to cut the salt back a bit or to rinse the veggies off after they've been soaked.

Wish I had read the reviews first. Needs rinsed or less salt. I wasted time, money and good produce! :(
