Sweet Horsradish pickles

Hi again. I had pickles this summer that someone made (she said this kind of pickle is very popular in Florida). Anyway, she said it was pickles, horsraadish and sweet & low. They were delicous but I haven't found the correct recipe (and I've made about 20 batches since the summer trying to duplicate them). Anyway, if anyone has a recipe for them, I'd love it if you could share. Thanks.

    Do not use creamy horseradish!!

    If you use Nitro horseradish you may want to use only one tablespoon the first time, depends on how hot you can take-it. I also prefer to use 2 tablespoons of dry mustard. I also have found that doing all this in a stainless steel bowl covering with plastic wrap and mixing them a couple of times then pack in jars. It's much easier.

    This sounds exactly right! Thanks for the tip about mixing in a stainless steel bowl as well.

    A friend of mine makes a delicious Hot-Sweet pickle that sounds like these, but they have peppercorns and hot red pepper in them. They may also have fresh grated ginger. Does that ring a bell with anyone? My friend will NOT give up the recipe.....Don't blame them.
