Sweet pickles are my downfall, I’ll eat them straight or with anything you can think of. Those day-after-Thanksgiving turkey sandwiches don’t fly for me without these pickles, nor does sharp cheddar or summer sausage.
Cooking teacher Lois Lee says this was her mom’s favorite summer project. No doubt her mother was a pragmatist of the first order because this is one of the easiest pickle recipes of all time. There is no need to worry about sterilizing, or killing off the family because your jars didn’t seal. This recipe makes a reasonable quantity, not gallons and gallons. Keep them in the refrigerator up to nine months. Then again, they won’t last long.
Cook to Cook: Make sure the jars are immaculately clean.
