Ok – I’m really tired and completely stuffed from my sushi dinner (and a little wine) tonight with my friends and hubby but wanted to post the Sweet & Spicy Smooth Pickles recipe as promised:
Put 1 quart dill pickles, drained, in a bowl (I used smooth dill pickles of course).
1 T. crushed red pepper
1 T. Tabasco sauce (or some other kind of hot sauce)
2 cups sugar
Stir. It will make it’s own juice. Leave in bowl and stir occasionally til sugar dissolves. Then store in jar.
All mixed up.
