Looking for Sweet Pickle Recipe

I hope this is okay to post here. I do not see a forum for this.

I am looking for a sweet pickle recipe that is super sweet and very crunchy. Very syrupy, almost amber liquid in jar. My Mother’s neigbor’s Mother (a mouthful there) used to make these. My Mother has lost the recipe and I would love to get a copy. It’s an older recipe I would assume, as I am having such a hard time locating it.

I have also seen green tomatoes pickled and canned this way.

If anyone has a recipe, please share.



This is one of my favorites and so easy it is embarrassing.

“Dill” Sweet Pickles

1 46 oz jar inexpensive dill pickles I use the store brand
3 cup sugar
2 cups water
1 cup cider vinegar

Drain pickles and slice diagonally. Drain on paper towels. Mix sugar water and vinegar and boil 12 minutes. Put pickles in HOT syrup. Put back in jar and refrigerate for at least 3 weeks before using. “FreshPack” pickles will not be crisp, use the generic dills. Amazingly good!

Here’s a recipe from a 1952 cookbook that I have.

Sweet Sliced Cucumber Pickles

3 quarts cucumbers, sliced
3 onions, chopped
2 green peppers, seeded and chopped
1/2 cup salt
1 quart vinegar
4 cups sugar
1 teaspoon whole cloves
1 Tablespoon white mustard seed
6 small sticks horseradish root

Mix vegetables with salt, let stand 3 hours and drain. Mix vinegar, sugar and spices and boil 5 minutes. Pack pickles in sterile hot jars with a stick of horseradish in the center of each and cover with boiling vinegar sirup. Seal. Makes 3 quarts.

I called a woman in our village who is known for her bread & butter pickles and her dill pickles. Everybody loves them! She’ll be giving me her recipes Tuesday. I’ll pass them on to you.


OK, I am diabetic, does anyone know if you can substitute “SPLENDA” for the sugar in these recipes?

I’m aware this recipe originated in 2005 BUT was just wondering IF any of the recipes posted were what “roger” was looking for?
