Kick-ass Spicy/Sweet Pickles

BEST pickles EVER!

A friend of mine just made me try her homemade pickles.  Holy crap, they were amazing!  Apparently, they take 7 days to “make” and require 4 ingredients:

  • Store bought pickles: slices or spears (you can cut the spears into smaller pieces)
  • Sugar
  • Minced garlic
  • Sliced jalapenos
  1. Drain the juice off your pickles
  2. Get an empty jar and layer the ingredients like this:

She said there aren’t any “standard” amounts for any of the ingredients… just wing it.  If you want it sweeter, add a slightly bigger layer of sugar… hotter, more jalapenos, etc.

3.  Let the jar of goodness sit for a day.  On day 2, turn it upside down (make sure the lid is on tightly).  Day 3, turn it back over (right side up).  Keep rotating the jar for 7 days.

At the end of day 7 your pickles should be ready to devour!

Seems like a lot of work (I could stop by Costco on the way home and get a huge ready-made jar of Sweet & Spicy Pickle Chips) but this might just be the do-it-yourself challenge I’ve been looking for…
