I made these yesterday, and as Steve suggested, doubled the salt and vinegar for longer storage. I also used dill seed.

Just had to sneak a little taste today, and it was lovely! Fresh and crunchy. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

I mentioned it in another post, but wanted to say it here too in case you didn't see that one. Thanks for the recipe, Steve! I used it as a base recipe for some pickles and I can't stop eating them. I tweaked it a bit for my tastes and what I had on hand, but I couldn't have done it without your recipe to start with. Yummy!

I wonder why most American recipe for pickles call for vinegar, while most Russian recipes for pickles do not call for vinegar? As the matter of fact the only vinegar dills I've ever had in Russia were store bought and most nobody ever bought them. Interesting.

Perhaps the ones in Russia are the kind that ferment slightly and make their own vinegar?

Charlie, have you posted a recipe for Russian-style pickles? It would be interesting to see the difference between that and American pickles.

I'm thinking this would be the perfect recipe to use weight for the salt.

Do you think this would work with English Cukes? I don't grow cukes and English are the only ones I can get organic.
