These pickles soaked in a sugar mixture taste just like candy! They take some time to make, but are a sweet treat.

Add about 20 cloves of garlic and you've got a wonderful sweet garlic pickle. I have given these to friends and family for Christmas. Great on sandwiches too. Right from the jar, you can't stop eating them.

I just love the sweet and slightly salty taste of these pickles! I added onion and bell peppers to mine and had better pickles than my old recipe with much more ease of preperation. Everyone loves them, and you can't find anything close to this tasty in a store. I bought a gallon jug of dill pickles at Sam's and packed mine in plastic storage containers in the refrigerator. They go quick.

GREAT! I used a large jar of Claussen Garlic Dills, I also added hot red pepper flakes & whole cloves along with the pickling spice, made them up about a week before Thanksgiving & when I served them everyone raved! They were still very crispy & deliciously spicy sweet.
