1 gal. jar whole SOUR pickles (not dill)
5 lbs. sugar
Tobasco to taste (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Remove whole pickles from jar. Save juice in a large measuring cup (you won't need all of it)
Cut pickles into half inch slices. Add about 2 inches of sugar back into pickle jar, next add a layer of pickles (you can put several drops of Tobasco to each layer as you go if you like spicy)
Continue to layer sugar and pickles. When you get to the top and not all will fit, pour a little of the saved pickle juice into jar, this will help dissolve sugar. Get as much sugar and pickles into jar as you can. Put on lid and let sit for a few days. Turn or roll jar on counter top to help dissolve sugar. When ready, juice in jar will be clear. It may take one day or several.
