Cook's Notes

To sterilize canning jars, submerge them in boiling water for at least 10 minutes and until they are ready to be filled. Use new lids, and sterilize them according to manufacturer's instructions. For complete instructions, refer to the U.S. Department of Agriculture's canning guidelines.

    I made these pickles today and doubled recipe. I made some slight modifications - using some brown sugar and white vinegar. It was terrific!!! Thank you, Martha - always a winner!!!

    100 STARS!! I have been making this recipe for several years, and felt compelled to comment, since I think this is time 10. AWESOME!!! Have not changed a thing, except that I have learned to make an additional half recipe of the liquid, so I can fill the jars to the top. They don't need to be processed, if you are going to eat them w/i about 2 weeks, but they are so good, that you'll want to make more to have later, so then process those. So good!!

    This recipe is almost the same as one that I got on this website back in 2003. Step 3 said , "Ladle pickles into clean jars. Let stand until cool. Cover, and store, refrigerated, for up to 1 month." I have made them that way since I don't have the canning equipment. I have also cut the recipe in half if I don't have enough cukes at one time. It works and they are delicious! Also, in the older recipe, the crushed red pepper was not called for, buy I added on my own.
