These are not your grandma's pickles! They are the perfect addition to spice up that tuna sandwich and add a little sweetness to any meal. Don't be intimidated by the size and amount of ingredients. These pickles won't last long. They make great gifts when divided into smaller jars!
1 gallon jar dill pickles (sliced). I try to get the thin sandwich slices.
1 (5 lb) bag sugar
1/2 cup garlic flakes (or 8 oz jar minced garlic in juice)
1 small bottle Tabasco
Drain pickle jar in strainer overnight. You will be shocked how much liquid comes out of that baby!
In the morning, remove pickles from jar. Put pickles back in jar, layering with sugar mixture. Use entire 5lb bag of sugar. Believe it or not, all ingredients fit back in jar.
Fasten lid tightly. Turn bottle upside down, once a day for 5 days.
After day 5 - Enjoy, Share, and Devour!!! No need to refrigerate - so don't worry about having room in the fridge!
