I bought a gallon of kosher dill. What was I thinking?? After eating 3 or 4, I couldn't stand them any longer. I had heard about a recipe to convert dill to sweet from my MIL (who is actually from Vicksburg so maybe she read the same book...) but she couldn't find it. Ta Da! You can find anything on the web. It is easy and the pickles are great. Give me turkey, wheat bread and a jar of these and I will be set for life...
