Spicy pickles with a hint of horseradish will set your pickles head and shoulders above the rest. You will get raves on these pickles! I always get asked to make more or bring more to work. These are worth a try! This makes a really crisp, great tasting pickle!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Soak the cucumbers in ice cold water for 2 to 3 hours.

    Advertisement
  • Sterilize 5 (1 quart) jars with lids and rings and keep hot.

  • In a large pot, combine the water, vinegar, sugar and pickling spices. Stir to dissolve sugar and bring to a boil.

  • While the mixture is heating up, place the following things into each jar: 1 tablespoon of salt, 2 cloves of garlic, 2 strips of horseradish, and a few sprigs of dill. Trim the ends from the cucumbers and make a slit in the skin of each one so the brine can soak in and any air can get out. Pack the cucumbers into the jars. Pour the boiling brine into the jars to within 1/2 inch of the rims. Seal with lids and rings.

  • Bring the water to a boil in the pot where you sterilized the jars. Place the jars into the water and turn off the heat. Let them sit in there until the water is cool. Test the jars for a good seal by pressing on the center of the lid. Refrigerate any unsealed jars.

These were a real crowd pleaser at our house! I am diabetic so I cut the sugar back to only 1/4 cup and we don't really like our pickles sweet. Other than that I followed the recipe completely and everyone loved them! The horseradish adds a nice taste to the pickles....definately a keeper! Read More

I made these using prepared horseradish because I couldn't find horseradish root at the grocery. I also just used half cup sugar and added 1 halved jalapeno to each jar. The mixture looks weird- milky white due to the prepared horseradish (2 T. per jar) but the pickles are fantastic! love these! Read More

I only made a small batch as it is a new flavor for us. I also omitted the sugar because we do not care for sweet pickles. I used purchased horseradish as I could not find fresh at my local store. I made sure to cut the blossom end off the cucumbers (keeps them crisper) and added a pinch of red pepper. These were fantastic! Tasty without clearing out your sinuses! LOL. My family loved them and I will make again. Read More
