This is another of my mother's recipes that I just found in the cookbook that she put together for our church when I was 9 or 10. I don't remember her making sweet pickles, I've been hoping to find her dill pickle recipe. I can remember her making those in huge crocks that lined the kitchen, but I digress... I'm not a huge sweet pickle fan, but for those of you who are I thought it might be something you would like to try. Her notes say these are 14 day pickles made in 3 days. Seems pretty simple. Enjoy!

This is the sixth recipe I've posted from that cookbook.
