Snappy Horseradish Dill Pickles
These pickles are a great last-minute gift because they are so easy to make-a little horseradish adds zip to a jar of purchased pickles. They're in hot demand at Christmas! My husband and three grown sons can't get enough of them.
Total TimePrep: 30 min. + chilling
- 1 jar (32 ounces) whole dill pickles
- 1/3 cup prepared horseradish
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- Drain and discard juice from pickles. Slice pickles into spears and return to jar. Add horseradish. In a saucepan, bring the sugar, water and vinegar to a boil. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Pour over pickles. Cool completely. Cover jar and shake. Refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight.
