I get tired of the same old "taste" when it comes to most pickles. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE them. But from time to time I like to mix it up and taste something a little different from the heat-processed pickles in the store. These are simple, tart, and put a little "zing" in your step - and in your mouth! And they are crazy-crunchy! - vivisue —vivisue

Test Kitchen Notes

This recipe is great -- very simple and quick to make. I cut it down to 3 cucumbers since I didn't think anyone else in my house would eat them. Boy was I wrong! My husband, who hates cucumbers, loved these! He loved the spices & the tartness from the cider vinegar. They became surprisingly pickle-like for such a short curing time. I will definitely be making these again and will be taking them to our library's next recipe round-up. - summar ann
