kosher dill pickles, drained and sliced
minus one cup sugar
whole garlic, minced
small bottle of tabasco sauce
1Drain and slice pickles. (I keep the juice to use for marinating chicken.)
2Mix the garlic and cloves with pickle slices.
3Layer 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.
4Let pickles set for 7 days. I turn the jar from time to time to prevent settling in the bottom of the jar.
