Sweet Pickles

on August 26, 2013

Today’s recipe is one of my sister’s favorites. She has a little problem with these Sweet Pickles. We would put the dish of pickles on the table for dinner and by the time we would sit down to finally eat dinner, we’d have to replenish the pickle dish.

Sweet Pickles

I have trouble making pickles from scratch so this is the perfect recipe. VERY easy and so good!

Here is the recipe as I made it:

Sweet Pickles

Take 1 quart of dill pickles and pour off the juice, dry them and cut them in chunks.


Put the chunks back in the jar.

Boil 1 cup apple cider vinegar and 2 cups sugar.

Pour the hot vinegar mixture over the chunks in the jar, put the lid back on, and put in refrigerator.


You can re-boil the vinegar mixture the next day and pour the same liquid over the pickles again to make them more crisp. I haven’t ever done this because the pickles are crisp already and frankly, they don’t last that long! I let these pickles sit in the brine for about a week before eating.


These are on every family holiday table!
