Mimi’s Sweet Pickles 

Boy did I get lucky when I married my husband from South Georgia. I mean really he is the lucky one buttttt his family sure knows how to whip up some delicious recipes. 

This recipe for sweet pickles is hands down one of the best things I have ever tried and literally so easy.

People who don’t even like pickles, will like these pickles.

They are like candy in cucumber form. Except not because they are already pickled. In dill pickle form. But then they turn sweet. I know it seems strange but hang in with me. It’s worth it.

So let’s begin:

Yep. I use Vlasic pickles. No they aren’t sponsoring this post. I just really like this brand for these pickles. Be sure to get the kosher whole dills – you can get two of the smaller containers or one large. Publix usually has these buy 1 get 1 free so..yeah.


Drain all the juice and place pickles in a strainer.

Once drained, begin chopping pickles until “chip slices” like so:

Start placing pickle chips back in glass jar. Leave some space at the top of jar (about 2 inches) 

Now here is where the fun comes in.

 2 1/2 cups sugar 
3/4 cups white vinegar
1 1/2 cups water

Put the lid back on and do the other jar. 

Once done put both jars in fridge and chill (both you and the pickles) 

*I let them stand over night and then turn them upside and let them sit upside down for a few hours to really let all the sugar mix throughout – make sure to secure lid tightly, or sticky liquid will drip out*

Once these babies are done they are crisp, sweet and pure heaven. Eat up. 

I eat them with Every. Single. Meal.

Spaghetti? Side of pickles.
Meatloaf? Side of pickles.
Fried chicken? Side of pickles.
Cereal? Side of pickles.

I hope y’all enjoy these as much as we do! Let me know what you think 🙂
