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.

prep time 20 Min


  •   1 gal
    kosher dill pickles, drained and sliced
  •   5 lb
    minus one cup sugar
  •   1
    whole garlic, minced
  •   1
    small bottle of tabasco sauce
  •   15
    whole cloves

How To Make

  • 1
    Drain and slice pickles. (I keep the juice to use for marinating chicken.)
  • 2
    Mix the garlic and cloves with pickle slices.
  • 3
    Layer 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.
  • 4
    Let pickles set for 7 days. I turn the jar from time to time to prevent settling in the bottom of the jar.
