Blue Ribbon Horseradish Pickles

Rated as 4.5 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  1. Soak the cucumbers in ice cold water for 2 to 3 hours.
  2. Sterilize 5 (1 quart) jars with lids and rings and keep hot.
  3. In a large pot, combine the water, vinegar, sugar and pickling spices. Stir to dissolve sugar and bring to a boil.
  4. 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.
  5. 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 complete...

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...

Great, simple receipe! I doubled the garlic and did not use sugar. Turned out awesome!

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 st...
