Huh! You rejected my basic pickle recipe. My pickles feel dejected and crushed.
IMHO, adding spices to the garlic and dill doesn't make it better. It's already perfection. I feel the same way about sauerkraut. Make it with cabbage, salt, and water and nothing else. For me, less is more, but to each his own.
Post the recipe if you try something and it fulfills all your pickle fantasies.
