Sweet tasting pickles that pack a punch. First time I tasted this recipe was when a lady at work brought them in.


  1. This is super easy to make and will be a sure hit with family and friends.
  2. Even people that do not like dill pickles like these sweet and spicy pickles.
  3. Drain all juice off the gallon of dill pickles.
  4. Slice each pickle length wise and then cut into bite size pieces (about 1/2 inch thick).
  5. In the gallon jar layer 1/4 of the pickles pieces, 1/2 oz of the Tabasco Sauce and 1 cup of sugar.
  6. Repeat three more times using all ingredients.
  7. Let pickles set overnight.

What great tasting pickles! I am not all that fond of Dill pickles and have had a quart staring at me for over a year so I cut this recipe back to 1 quart ( used 3/4 oz of Tabasco and 1 cup sugar).I do like spicy. I could not believe how tasty these were after only one night in the fridge. The flavor is sweet but perky. Thanks Farmwife for a simple, great recipe

I made this using a 1 1/2 pint jar of hamburger dill slices. I scaled the amounts back appropriately & added a pinch of pickling spice. I was rewarded with a batch of tasty pickles. I do like my sweet pickles hot so next time I will add more hot sauce & perhaps some red pepper flakes to up the heat factor. Thanks for a nice recipe!

easy to prepare......i used with covered batter to deep fry.......exceptional taste with just a hint of "hot".....but addictive due to the dill & spice.
