Claussen Kosher Pickle Copycat
I found this to be almost identical to Claussen Pickles. The key to really crisp pickles is to use very fresh pickling cucumbers. Regular salad cucumbers usually have a wax coating which just doesn't work. Also, they have much bigger seeds and a thick skin which is yucky for pickles.
Yield: 2 servings ( Serving Size: Quart )
