Thumbs up Edited Recipe

I desired a brine that tasted closer to true pickle juice, so I experimented a bit with the existing recipe of vinegar, water, salt and sugar.

Here is the modified recipe

In addition, I now buy baby pickling cucumbers and cut them into quarters (4 whole or 32 quarters). I insert these into the pickle juice and I no longer have to buy pickles The cucumbers mellow the brine mixture further, for those who find it too vinegar-heavy.

^^ Use quart-size Mason or Kerr seal-able glass containers if adding pickling cucumbers.
