Sweet Chunk Pickles

Sweet Chunk Pickles created by lauralie41

This started out as a recipe from Miriam B. Loo (Current, Inc). I added more spice and garlic. I like garlic. I've made these pickles for years. This recipe has gone to innumerable pot-lucks. I try to keep a fresh batch in the fridge (when I open one jar, I make another) because someone in the house gets a midnight craving or we get invited to dinner (terrific hostess gift) or someone at work organizes a picnic or pot-luck.

    We loved these pickles! Bread and butter or sweet pickles are not my favorite but I enjoyed these. When adding the garlic cloves I didnt read the directions well and added them to the sugar mixture to boil. I added one additional large clove of garlic before putting the pickles in the fridge to chill. Later in the evening I stirred the pickles and tasted, wonderful flavors already in just a couple hours. Thank you so much countrywife, there will be a batch of these pickles in my fridge often!

    I let this sit in the fridge for overa aweek and the flavor was way overpowering. I followed the directions exactly.
