CHRISTMAS PICKLES



Christmas Pickles image

A dear family friend made these pickles for decades. I've adapted the recipe a bit over the years, but in my heart they are still "Dr. Rhodes' pickles." These morsels are delicious any time of year, but the green, red and white hues of the pickles, cherries and onions make them ideal for Christmas gift-giving-and it's a tasty twist on the classic Christmas pickle tradition. -Patricia Martin, Shelby

TEXAS CHRISTMAS PICKLES



Texas Christmas Pickles image

These spicy/sweet pickles are a Texas tradition. My mother and I have made these delectable pickles for Christmas every year since I was young. We separate each batch into smaller jars and give them as gifts to friends and family. I would hate to think what would happen if we skipped a year!!

Yield 60

Number Of Ingredients 4

1 gallon dill pickles
1 (5 ounce) bottle hot pepper sauce (e.g. Tabasco™)
5 cloves garlic, chopped
1 (5 pound) bag of white sugar

Close the lid tightly. Gently tip the jar back and forth several times to allow everything to mix well. Leave out on the counter at room temperature for about 1 week.

When all of the sugar has been absorbed, pickles will be dark green and crispy. Transfer pickles to smaller sterile jars, and divide syrup between jars. Seal with lids and rings. Store in the refrigerator, and consume within one month.

TEXAS CHRISTMAS PICKLES RECIPE



Texas Christmas Pickles Recipe image

Provided by bethz

Number Of Ingredients 4

1 gallon dill pickles
1 5 oz bottle hot pepper sauce
5 cloves garlic, chopped
5 lbs white sugar

Steps:

  • Drain brine from the pickles and discard. Slice pickles lengthwise and return to the jar (I buy dill pickles already sliced). Pour in hot sauce and add garlic. Pour in about 1/3 of the sugar. Close the lid tightly. Gentle tip the jar back and forth several times to allow everything to mix well. Leave out on the counter at room temperature for about 1 week. During the week add more sugar whenever all the sugar in jar has dissolved. Gently tip back and forth to mix well. Do this each day until all the sugar has been added. When the sugar has completely dissolved the pickles will be dark green and crispy. Transfer to smaller sterile jars and divide syrup between jars. Seal with lids and rings. Store in refrig and consume in a month. Note: I sometimes buy a quart and reduce the other ingredients accordingly. I place into Ball plastic jars with green screw on tops.
