I grew up on these pickles being made once a year. Being canned, these pickles take two weeks to make but are so worth it. After my grandfather died in 1996, there were enough pickles canned to last two more years. After that, there weren't made any more. My grandmother said she had lost the recipe and even if she had it there was no one to help her make them anymore. Going through her recipe book, what did I find? It was my grandfather's recipe! I'm proud to be able to share it with you. If you like sweet pickles, you're going to just die when you taste these.
