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.

How to Make Sweet and Spicy Pickles


  • 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.
  • 5Refrigerate.
