DIRECTIONS

  • Drain pickles and rinse gallon jar.
  • Slice pickles into 3/4" or 1" rounds, drain again.
  • Into jar layer sliced pickles, peeled garlic, and sugar; add NO liquid.
  • Pour on the whole bottle of tabasco sauce, NOTE: I have used the 2oz size when I wanted a less spicy pickle and I think tabasco is the only brand of hot sauce to use in this recipe.
  • Add bottle of red OR green food coloring if desired.
  • Cap jar and shake.
  • Store in icebox and shake it daily to mix the ingredients and dissolve the sugar.
  • In about a week you will have brightly colored,spicy pickles!
  • Note: as these marinate over the week they shrink, so the yield will be less than a gallon.
