Joey's Story

Recipe given to me by dear friends who have since passed away. Never had anyone who did not like these. These are always in my fridge. So so simple! I hope you enjoy them too.


1 gal
vlasic dills or whole sours (i like to cut them to my preferred size)
12 clove
garlic - mashed
4 lb
2 tsp
mustard seed
2 tsp
celery seed
1 or 2 bottle
tabasco sauce (i use only one)

Directions Step-By-Step

Drain dill pickles well.
Cut whole pickles into bite sized pieces
Layer pickles in jar interspersed with rest of ingredients. Add most of the sugar at the last. It takes some shaking to get all the sugar to settle in the jar.
Roll every day for 1 week. (usually takes only 1-2 days)
Refrigerate or process. (I keep mine in the fridge and they keep very well)

    These are wonderful! I like mine extra spicy so use dried red chili flakes too. I haven't used the mustard seed, but imagine it would be a good addition. I make a gallon of these at a time and keep in the fridge. Use them to make tuna salad and other meat salads...they are especially good there, but they are great to just eat too!

    Nellie - the tabasco is not that strong - one small bottle works great. Thanks for trying them.. My jar is "seasoning"...
