i put the cukes and onions in 4 pint jars, so I had to double the brine. Very easy to make.

I’ve had these up to about 9 months! Just starting to lose their crunch. I make several gallon every year

With an abundance of cucumbers, I looked for an easy pickle recipe and found this. We tasted them the next day and loved them. This is a recipe going into my regular recipe box!! I didn't have celery seed or mustard seed, so used pickling spice instead, and a pinch of dill. I had to double the liquid part in order to fill the jars.

Love these savory sweet pickles! I’ve been making them since the recipe was first published. My garden produces many cucumbers every year and this is my family’s favorite way to eat them!

Great recipe. I had five cups of cucumbers. Used 2 cups vinegar and 2 of sugar. Didn’t have turmeric. Still short on liquid. Used stone to stuff cukes into two quarter jars. Poured in liquid. Then turned upside down. The liquid is now at the top of the jar. Those are the ones we’ll eat first and simply turn the jar upside down until the cukes and liquid are equal and then I’ll set the jars upside like they belong.

Delicious! Great for when you just have a small amount of cucumbers or don't want to go to the trouble of canning them. Just enough spices to give it a great flavor!
