distilled white vinegar
sliced green bell peppers
Wonderful, I left out the sugar for two reasons, one it cuts down on the carbs and two I like my pickles a little tart. This is a keeper
Ok, I made these and they were easy and look totally fantastic....but the garlic slices I put in there turned BLUE after 3 days in the fridge. What happened? TheStaff@Allrecipes Note: The acidity of the vinegar turned the garlic blue. Garlic contains anthocyanins that turn blue or purple in an acid solution (the pickle juice). It is ok to eat the pickles.
This is a very good recipe. The only difference I did was add a teaspoon of celery seed and a tablespoon of mustard seed. I also made a recipe and a half of the vinegar, sugar and salt mixture. I like more liquid in mine. This was very easy to make. Thanks for the recipe.
Made these today....yuuuummmmmmy!! I used 6 large cucumbers, 1 large vidalia and 2 green peppers. I added 2 tbsp mustard seed and 1 tbsp celery seed to the mix. One thing you need to know, the cucumbers really reduce down once they have sat in the vinegar. I filled jars and processd them in a hot water bath, and when they came out the jars were only half full. I would let the mixture sit in the bowl for at least 2 hours and then fill your jars if you are going to process them. Thanks for the great recipe!!
To the person who gave this one star and wanted to give it zero. So your garlic turned blue. THERE IS NO GARLIC IN THE RECIPE. Don't change the recipe and then give it a bad review.
These are really good! How long will they last in the refrigerator?? I've only made one batch so far but I could make a lot more if they'll last a while.
I have made in the past pickles that taste similar to these which required a lot more work. I will be using this recipe often.
This was a good pickle recipe and it was the first one I had ever made since I had so many pickles from my cucumber plant this year. I used the same recipe, except using splenda instead of sugar. I did add more vinegar with others advice but found (since it was the first time I made pickles) that after the cucumbers sit in the fridge overnight the 1st time, they will create more juice and more liquid will appear. So, I would not fill up my bottles completely with liquid before letting them refrigerate. Thanks for the recipe!
