Nana Pickles

 

Weird to buy pickles, cut the ends off and recreate pickles with a new brine. But, I promise you will really enjoy these.

Nana Pickles

My kids LIVE for these, and they really couldn’t be easier. Give them a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed:)
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 10 MinTotal time: 15 Min

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 small onion, diced or cut into rings
  • 1 quart of dill pickles (we usually get the baby dills)

Instructions

  1. Boil the sugar, vinegar and water for 1 minute. Let cool. Drain the quart of pickles. Cut the ends off of each pickle – I think this helps the flavor penetrate. Put them back into the jar, layering onions often. 
  2. Pour the liquid over the pickles, stick them in the fridge and let them sit for at least 24 hours. It may seem like a pain for pickles, but these are worth it.
