Make Dill Pickles Sweet!

Updated. Works for Me Wednesday is no longer at Rocks in my Dryer but over at We Are That Family. So head over to We Are That Family to see what some of the all time favorites of WFMW are.

The new thing in the Southern States is to get a quart of dill pickles and make them sweet. So I thought I would tell you all how to do this.

1 Quart jar of dill pickles (I use Mt Olive, Hamburger Dill Chips)

2 cups of sugar

1/2 cup of vinegar

Drain your pickles, rinse, and lay out on a couple of paper towels to dry out some. In a small bowl combine the sugar and the vinegar. It will dissolve some, but does not have to dissolve completely. Put the pickles back in the jar and pour the sugar/vinegar mixture on top. I promise it will all fit. Put the top back on and shake, set the bottle on it lid for a little while and then turn it over. After you do that 3 or 4 times everything is mixed, dissolved and ready for the fridge.

This is a great idea... I'm not too crazy about dill, but I love sweet pickles!

Here is a silly question, why not buy sweet pickeles to begin with. I know that this maybe an obvious question but I just wondered.

To the question about why not just buy sweet pickles? Because these are 10 times better than any pickles you can buy. You can also add pickling spice to them.

These are very good, and it is actually a very old thing to do. The Women's Exchange in Memphis serves them. They are like lime pickles that are made from fresh cucumbers and take two weeks to make. You can also add a little hot sauce or a jalapeno and make hot sweet pickles. GOOD!!
