Thanks dude. I made them and turned to be near perfect. For mine I think that dill would have been the perfection.

Don't assume your kosher salt is pure.
I have some Morton's Kosher Salt, but it had anti-caking agent in it. I had to find pickling salt (also Morton's). Found Pickle Crisp at Walmart.

Shelli's Space says:

As far as the heating for 30 minutes at 185° why do we start with it at 120-140? And the time it takes to get to 185° does not count towards the 30 minutes correct?

t h says:

How long can you store these for?

Hello if you looking for a extra sweet pickle can you add more sugar like maybe 4 cups vinegar to 8 cups sugar

Great video thanks very much. I'm about to pickle about a bushel of cucumbers

Randall Laue says:

What does “Bread and butter” mean?… eat on bread with butter? That’s why cut to that shape?
