I have made Both 9 day and 14 day pickles, thay are both my favorite Sweet pickles to make.
These are very tasty stay crispy, and sweet for Years. Very Easy,
even for You beginners.
Just be sure you use a glass container Big enough for the Pickles, or a crock, but No metal.

I have used gallon jars and crocks, or even a big enamal pot they all work well.
