Recipe sounds good. Just remember to use canning or Kosher salt. Salt with iodine in will solften cucumbers.

These sound very good. I presume we're canning and not refrigerating? If so, what do you recommend for canning time? (By the way, Robin, I LOVE all of your recipes. If it's a "Robin from Iowa" recipe, I always print it and hope to get through them all someday. Haven't tried a bad one yet; you must eat extremely well at your house!)
