Passed down to my grandmother from Aunt Alpha. These Pickles are the bomb. I can remember as a young child going to my grandmother’s house and i just couldn't wait to get my hands on the jar of sweet pickles. They are like Lays Potato Chips! You can't eat just one. This recipe is very well worth the three days it takes to make them. A Special Thanks to my Aunt Kay and Mom for sharing this awesome family recipe with me. From my family to yours. Enjoy!
