Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I just made this recipe and it is good. I gave it only 4 stars because of a lack of information in the recipe. I did get in touch with Mr.Food test kitchen about the amount of liquid (vinegar - 1 TBLSP) and they did confirm that amount because when the sugar melts it does become liquid and the cucumbers and onions do give off liquid. The note would be helpful in the directions. Also, starting to cook on low and keeping it on low it took aboout 12-15 minutes. One very important step in the directions was missed. After saying drain the vegetables it should also say to rinse the salt off them, if you don't they will be very salty and at the end of cooking I had to add another TBLSP of vinegar since it wasn't tart enough. I will make this recipe again with the additions I made to this recipe.

Only 1 T. vinegar??? Sounds doubtful to me.

One tablespoon of vinegar doesn't sound like enough liquid to combine with the cucumbers to end up with 6 pints.
