I am the poster of this recipe and I am not sure why an important step was taken out of the publishing. The pickles and other ingredients should be stirred together in a large bowl refrigerated and stirred every few hours for about a day and then added to the jar after the sugar has dissolved. I know it seems like a large amount of sugar I thought the same when I was first given the recipe but all the sugar should dissolve if you stir every few hours. I see some posting that they changed the recipe and give a lower start rating maybe don't rate the recipe unless you try it as it's written. Read More

I have been making a very similar recipe to this for years. I don't care much for dill so I use sour pickles that I have to buy from Best Maid over the 'net' because they are hard to come by where I live. I do use minced garlic then let them set for a week stirring once a day then again I make a greater volume than this using a 5 lb bag of sugar so it takes some time to get all the sugar desolved. Try chopping some of these pickles into a relish and add to deviled eggs tuna salad chicken salad etc. We love using these pickles every chance we get! Even adds a nice touch to a big ole juicy brat.

Great Grandpas pickles are fabulous! I did make a small change in that I threw in a few slices of pickled jalapenos and about 2 tablespoons of the pickling juice from the jalapenos. All of the adults in my house declared these the "best pickles" they ever had and they asked me to keep them on hand all the time. We eat them with dinner every night we eat at home.... With Mexican food italian food any kind as these pickles are good with everything. Read More

These were really good - I ended up using a 24 oz. jar of pickles because I couldn't find the 16 oz. size but used the original ingredient amounts. They're delicious - and I didn't have the pepper flakes on hand but the tabasco added the perfect amount of zing. Lov 'em and sooo easy! Read More

These were very good! Nice blend of sweet and spicy! I had some sugar that did not disovle though on the bottom of the jar next time I think I may cut the sugar a bit. My 17 year old daughter loved them! Read More

Ridiculously easy to make and so delicious! These pickles are a great addition to tomato sandwiches. I used half the sugar just to save a few calories. The full amount would have been awesome too. Read More
