Sounds good, thanks for the recipe. With the cayenne, it sounds similar to my favorite sweet/hot store bought pickles, Wickles.

RE: RECIPE: fresh pickles

I grew up with a similar recipe, but my aunt used vinegar instead of lime and no cayenne. I picked up some nice pickling cukes at the farmer's market this morning. I plan to make this and use my thai peppers from the yard for "kick". Sounds really good! Thanks for posting this!

Oh, I love the Wickles too. My grocery store no longer carries the relish but they do carry Wickles peppers--great!
