Oh so Good Sweet Dill Pickles

from Bon Apetit and tweaked a bit. The pickles are dill but with a sweet taste. You can make these one week ahead of time, and they should keep for 2-3 weeks, but I bet you eat them before that! These are great for summer relish trays by the BBQ.

Made these as a trial run for making more, & I hit the jackpot with these ~ THEY'RE GREAT! Will definitely make these again to include on my next finger food buffet! Also have them saved in my Holiday Gift Ideas cookbook! Absolutely love changing a dill to a sweet! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
