This recipe sounded interesting and so easy I had to try it. Great tasting pickle. Thanks for sharing.
From reading Taste of Home's Recipes Across America Cookbook I learned that a favorite treat among schoolkids living in the Mississippi Delta is Kool-Aid Pickles. I thought they sounded interesting, so I gave them a try. I used the Kool-Aid flavor of tropical punch. The pickles had a sweet and sour flavor but not any trace of the tropical punch flavor. They did take on a blue color, which was fun to me. My husband, 3 of the kids and myself liked these a lot.
Better than I thought they would be! You can taste the sweetness and kool-aid for the first few crunches, then end up with all dill. Pretty good, and my kids like them (they won't eat regular dill yet).
