    Really DELICIOUS! I grated the cucumber and onion making it into a relish. I might try adding grated cabbage, celery and red pepper next time. I will definitely make this again and again. Thanks for sharing. - 12/9/08

    These were so easy and tasted wonderful. Reminded me of an old recipe my M-I-L used to make. I used the Splenda for the sugar and they were plenty sweet. I also didn't have white vinegar on hand, so I used apple cider vinegar and still was pleased with these. Thanks Carolyn! I'll be making more soon - 7/25/08

    Couple of questions: How much is 1 serving and how long will this stay fresh in the fridge? I believe I saw where someone stated a month below, just confirming. Thank you! - 3/16/09

    Reply from CAROLYN0107 (3/17/09)
    I consider a serving as 1/4 cup. These keep for weeks in the refrigerator.

    I make this, but don't soak the cukes before hand. I also will sometimes add a little dill in, which my kids love. My mom always made this. - 8/1/08

    I have made my own easy homemade pickles since my mom taught me when I was little, if you really like them to taste like real pickles leave the sugar out and don't boil them. Just slice them up and they can keep in the fridge for at least a month. They are crispier too if you don't boil them. - 7/26/08

    Melony, the recipe does not call for boiling the cucumbers and onions but boiling the sugar, vinegar and pepper before pouring it over the cucumbers and onions. Although this recipe is called a "pickle", it is more like a cucumber & onion salad.

  • I love this recipe and my family does too. I got it originally from my mother the only difference is that after making it I freeze it for at least a couple of days before thawing and serving it. It'll last for a couple of months in the freezer. - 9/30/09

  • These are really good. Not too sweet and just the right amount of tangy-ness. I sliced the cucumbers and only used half a large onion and they turned out great! - 7/15/09

  • i love these pickles!! but sweet pickles aren't my favourite so i halved the sugar and they came out great! i also added mustard seed and dill. i'm going to try adding some garlic to today's batch. i make these all the time now! - 6/18/09

  • I add half a teaspoon of celery seeds and one teaspoon of yellow mustard seeds for a real boost in flavour. If I use white vinegar instead of cider or malt vinegar, I add a small amount of turmeric for colour and taste. - 5/5/09

  • this is delicious, but the nutrition info is off. your ingredients don't list sugar and only 1 cucumber to make 10 servings. also, 1 T salt is not same as 1/4 cup salt. i know it doesn't all get eaaten if you pour off the liquid, but some remains.
    yes, dill and cukes are great partners. - 4/29/09
