“This is made with rye bread. I've never tried this but it sounds good. From the Weiss cookbook. If anyone has made pickles like this please rate it and tell me about it since I've never done this before, ok. Oh, Suzzanna has made these and she has more directions than were given so please read. Thanks.”
