My grandma makes these really awesome little pickles. Kind of sweet, but not in the same way sweet pickles are. I make them a lot in the summer, but haven't given them much thought lately.
We had dinner at my grandparents this past weekend and she had these on the table as an appetizer/dinner go along. I ate one without thinking much of it, but when I bit down....yummy!! They really hit the spot and I ended up eating more than a dozen before I realized. Oops! I hope the others got some too. :o)
These do take some time to do their thing in the fridge so you have to remember to make them before you need them.
Grandma's Sweet Dill Pickles
1 qt. dill pickles (midget pickles work great)
1/4 cup water
2/3 cup vinegar
2 1/2 cups sugar
Bring water, vinegar and sugar to a boil in a saucepot. Be careful not to boil over! Set aside to cool.
Meanwhile, drain pickles and rinse with cold water. Rinse out the jar. Cut pickles into 1 inch pieces and place back in jar. When liquid is cool, pour over pickles. Replace lid and store in refrigerator at least a week for best flavor.
