KaliMa 6y agoexcellent recipe - however I used only half of the sugar mentioned. Great taste! Just they way they are served in Germany.
mallard 7y agoThis recipe is great but I made my second batch with 4 cups of sugar and it was much better, I may even try it with three cups next time. I also put half a teaspoon of mustard seed into each jar for looks and taste. It's as close as you'll get to the original store bought senfgurken.
