Candied Dill Pickles

Candied Dill Pickles

I love condiments like pickles, olives, and marinated vegetables.  Candied Dill Pickles are a sweet and sour sensation that makes it hard to eat just one.  When you pair these Candied Dill Pickles with a sandwich, they take an ordinary sandwich over the top.

Sweet and sour pickles to enjoy with your favorite sandwich.
Recipe type: Condiments
Yield: A lot!
  • 1 (46 ounce) jar whole dill pickles (I used Vlasic)
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • ½ cup white vinegar
  • Heaping tablespoon pickling spices
  • Cheesecloth
Preparation Instructions
  1. Drain pickle juice into a large bowl, reserving about ½ cup of juice.
  2. Slice whole pickles into desired thickness. Place sliced pickles back into the original jar and cover with granulated sugar; stir.
  3. Pour reserved ½ cup of pickle juice and white vinegar over slices. Stir thoroughly.
  4. Allow pickle slices to set at room temperature for several hours, stirring occasionally, until sugar is dissolved.
  5. Place the heaping tablespoon of pickling spice into the center of a cheesecloth square. Tie up the corners or secure with a piece of string.
  6. Drop spice bag into the pickle jar.
  7. Secure lid and place in the refrigerator. The pickles need to set for about 4 to 5 days, turning the jar upside down every day or two to keep the juices mixed.
  8. After 4 or 5 days, the pickles are ready to eat.
