How to Make Fire and Ice Pickles


  1. Drain dill pickles well.
  2. Cut whole pickles into bite sized pieces
  3. 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.
  4. Roll every day for 1 week. (usually takes only 1-2 days)
  5. Refrigerate or process. (I keep mine in the fridge and they keep very well)
