Of course, you don’t have to have a garden to be able to make these sandwich pickles. You can pick up cucumbers at your local Farmer’s Market. We visit ours once a week to check out all of the fresh garden produce. This is an easy sweet pickle recipe to try. To make your pickles with a cool wavy edge like you see on store bought pickles, you really need this chopper. I really think it makes the pickles more crunchy.

Wondering how to choose cucumbers for pickling? A lot depends on the type of pickles you’re making. If you are making pickle spears or pickling whole pickles, you’ll want to be sure that the pickle fits into your canning jar. If you’ll be slicing the pickles, look for a cucumber that is of average size.  You won’t want the seeds to be too large or the slices to be too small. If you love pickles, you may want to look for a burpless variety if too many give you gas.

  1. Hi there. Just made a batch of these pickles but I need some guidance on step #5. How long am I to simmer them in the vinegar/water mixture? I simmered for 5 minutes and am hoping that was good enough.
  2. I didn't grow up with canning or pickling, or a garden for that matter! I am slowly but surely learning how to do these things and this looks like a good one.
  3. I really like sweet pickles, and have been looking for a recipe for sandwich pickles that someone had personal experience with. Do this pickles stay crunchy at all? Or do they get soft after all the heating and processing?
