“You just have to eat these pickles to understand how good they are. I will never again make this type pickles from scratch. These are just as good and a lot less trouble. The cook time is actually refrigerator time, since you don't do any cooking on this. Special thanks to my Aunt Poly Cole for this recipe.”
