sweet pickles cooked in oven?

i recently had some sweet pickles that delisious. the lady told me she made them from pickling cucumbers and other stuff. but after they set for a while she put them in the oven to finish them off and make them crisp. have not heard of thwt recipe, has anyone out there heard of it. they are just like candid sweet pickles and they certainly are habit forming. good with cheese and crackers or on a relish tray. can anyone help me?::neutral:
