Sweet and Spicy Pickles
My sister gave me this recipe. It has become a family favorite...I also give jars for gifts. Recipients also ask for more. These pickles are great in potato salad, slaw, and on sandwiches. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
kosher dill pickles, drained and sliced
small bottle of tabasco sauce
Drain and slice pickles. (I keep the juice to use for marinating chicken.)
Mix the garlic and cloves with pickle slices.
Layer pickles and sugar in the pickle jar, beginning and ending with sugar. About halfway up, add 1/2 bottle of Tabasco. Continue layering. Add remaining Tabasco over last layer of sugar.
Let pickles set for 7 days. I turn the jar from time to time to prevent settling in the bottom of the jar.
