Homemade Sweet Dill Pickles
Put sugar and vinegar into the jar. Stir. Put jar into microwave 30 seconds - stir. Microwave another 30 seconds, stir again. The liquid will be just slightly warm. (this step is to help the sugar dissolve).
Pack the pickle slices into the jar. You may have to pour off a bit of the liquid to fit all the pickles. Make sure the pickles are fully covered by the liquid. Wipe the rim of the jar. Tear off a piece of plastic wrap and place it over the rim of the jar (this allows you to
turn the jar upside down to help make sure all the pickles are in the solution).
Shake the jar several times over the next few hours, the sugar should be thoroughly dissolved.
Put the date on the jar. Refrigerate. Gently shake every few days. I let mine sit 4 - 6 weeks to develop the best flavor.
