My neighbor used to give these delicious pickles as gifts. All her recipes were legend and she shared them in her very sought-after holiday cards. These pickles are very crisp and tasty, with just enough "bite" from the horseradish.

These are really good pickles ! The flavor is best after they have set (refrigerated) for about a week . They turn out sweet with a nice bite from the horseradish . I will have a jar of these in the frig. at all times , from now on !!! Great recipe !!!

After sampling something similar, I had to try this recipe. Sliced pickles pick up more of the horseradish flavor. Hubby's family loves them. I always have at least 2 jars made up in the fridge.
