"This is an easy recipe for homemade sweet pickles without the fuss. It takes a while for all the sugar to dissolve, but it's worth the wait."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
Scaled this down to 12 servings and used a 16-oz jar of dill hamburger chips. Gotta tell you, this surprised the heck out of me because we REALLY liked them. They're sweet, but you don't lose the dill flavor either, a really good balance of sweet-dill. Don't add any vinegar to this because you don't need it. Just drain the pickles, add the seasonings as listed, give this a day in the fridge shaking/turning upside down occasionally, and you'll have delicious juice in the pickle jar...patience will pay off! You can't buy a jar of pickles that tastes like this, and it just doesn't get much easier to mix up a batch. Going into my Favorites Collection.
