This is so easy to do and it is great to have to put on a relish tray on a holiday or at a party. You do have to plan ahead a little though.

How to Make Hot, Sweet, Dill Pickles


  • 1Drain the pickles, leaving the pickles in the original jar and saving the lid to reseal the jar with. Pour bottle of Tabasco sauce into jar with pickles. Dump the whole 5 lb. bag of white sugar over the Tabasco and pickles. Reseal the jar.
  • 2This takes several days to complete. Keep turning the jar upside down, sideways, just keep moving the jar every time you go past it. I store it on the counter top during this phase. Eventually the sugar will dissolve and it will seep into the pickles along with the Tabasco sauce.
  • 3Once the sugar has dissolved completely you can use the pickles. We cut them in chunks. Good to eat along with other cut vegetables, olives, cheese chunks, you get the idea. Enjoy!
