dill pickle slices, drained
I have made this so many times. It is so easy. Cheap dill pickle slices make it a lot cheaper. I also have use dill spears. They work great also.
I pour all pickle into a large colander (sp)draining all juice off. Towel dry whole pickle, cut into irregular pieces. Layer 4 #sugar, sliced pickle,1/4 cup pickling spice till "dirty" jar is full and pour 1 cup white vinegar over. Seal tightly and place in a large bowl on top. Invert daily for 14 days. Ready to eat. GREAT for neighbor gifts of 1 pt. each. Seal and tie a big bow on top and recipe. They love it.
