Ingredients:  
Ingredients:  
1 gallon sliced dill pickles; keep bucket (found at Costco or other wholesale stores)
5 pounds white sugar
1 jar garlic dill pickles; 12 oz. or whatever you can find (*If unable to find garlic dill pickles use large flakes of dried garlic to taste; approximately 2-3 tbsp. If using garlic pickles and you really like garlic add some flakes.)
1/3 of small bottle of Tabasco sauce

Directions:
Directions:
Drain pickles in large strainer overnight. Return to jar and layer in sugar, garlic pickle chips and Tabasco. Replace lid tightly. Place on large plate and rotate flipping over end to end daily for 5 days. Taste on 5th day and adjust Tabasco and garlic to taste and rotate 2-3 days more. If sugar does not look totally dissolved continue to rotate until dissolved. On occasion, I have put contents into a very large bowl to stir if the sugar is being stubborn or I want to taste to evaluate for the Tabasco and garlic flavors. Bottle into individual containers as desired. Enjoy!!!

Personal Notes:
My mother made these for years and gave out as gifts which everyone loved. It was the only recipe she didn't share so everyone in town wasn't making them!! It sounds like a very strange recipe but you get fabulous "sweet and hot" pickles.
