  • 1 gallon (3.8 ltr) regular dill (or Kosher) pickles
  • 5 cups (1175 ml) sugar
  • 1 cup (225 ml) tarragon vinegar
  • 1 jar stemless maraschino cherries (for Christmas gifts)

  • Add 1 cup (225 ml) tarragon vinegar and 5 cups (1175 ml) sugar.
  • Replace top on jar.
  • Invert several times daily for 3 days.

At Christmas, I add a jar of stemless maraschino cherries to the pickling mixture for color. These are delicious, crisp, sweet pickles, much better than bought, and make nice gifts.
