Drain all the juice from pickles. Rinse in cold water and let drain a few minutes. Remove from jar.
Fill jar 1/2 full with pickles, add 1/2 of the sugar, place other 1/2 of pickles on top of sugar, and add the rest of the sugar. Pour tobasco on top, place clove of garlic on top. Be sure lid is placed on tightly.
Every day, turn the jar. One day on the lid, the next day right side up, until the sugar is dissolved. This takes about 6 days. Serve cold.
