Sweet & SPICY Dill Pickles

beth norred


im not a fan of sweet pickles, but i was talked into trying some made by Wickles. They quickly became my favorite. i shared with all my friends and my nurse practitioner friend called me and told me one of her patients brought her a jar of homemade Sweet & Hot pickles. Well, I just had to have her recipe, they are DELICIOUS. just the right amount of SPICE. and they are SEMI-HOMEMADE which made the recipe even BETTER.. a little time with a BIG reward.. YUMMY. My parents love them, most of my friends love them, even my brother who HATES sweet pickles, really Liked these and had to have a jar.:)
