Hi Lynne, My Mom made them in a crock too. With the sun shining through they sure look pretty,,,I can almost smell the dill from here...Brings back some wonderful memories too! Love, Penny

Well if the pickles disappear and some one named Snickers has garlic breath...you know who the pickle thief is!

These look so yummy! I tried to grow my own pickling cukes this year. I didn't get many and the ones I did grew so fast, too fast, that by the time I went to harvest they were extremely large and orange. I'll try again next year!
