Afterburner Petite Dill Pickles

Recipe by Rita1652

These are sweet and then you get hit with heat! I posted these because I have many requests for the recipe. No canning needed! This is a very easy cheat recipe! A take off of Afterburner Pickles, using a lot less sugar! You are more then welcome to add more sugar. You can also use the same jar the pickles came in being you discard the juice it should fit.

I have to admit, I expected to love these pickles. I wish I did. I guess the sugar should have given me a clue that they really weren't hot and spicy but sweet sweet sweet and spicy. I really don't like sweet picked so did a slight adjustment to the recipe... 32oz petite dills, 2/3 of a 12oz jar of jalape
