This is an excellent recipes with the right ratio of spices to zucchini. Tastes like old fashoined bread and butter pickles, a family favorite! The instructions are easy to follow and includes the safety steps for sterile jars and processing. Thank you!

This is the third time I have made this recipe. The pickles are great. HOWEVER I cut the sugar by 1/2 cup, the salt by 1 T, and I add more turmeric. FYI: 3 1/2 pounds of zucchini and a cup of onion only make 3 1/2 pints.
