    This recipe is great for more than just cucumbers! I have quick-pickled zucchinis, radishes, green tomatoes, and cucumbers. I intend to try even more!

    This recipe is terrific! Easy, no fuss and delicious. We couldn't make pickles fast enough for consumption. If you are lucky enough to be able to grow your own cucumbers - try this recipe.
