  • 32 oz cucumbers slices or spears; if using store bought, drain the brine
  • 2 C granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes


  • Drain and discard juice from pickles. If starting with garden-fresh cucumbers, cut pickles and place in large bowl.
  • In a large bowl, combine pickles, sugar, hot sauce, and red pepper flakes. Mix well.
  • Cover and let stand 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally. The mixture will produce its own brine.
  • Spoon pickle mixture into 2-3 pint-size jars. Add a clove of garlic to each. Cover and refrigerate for 7 days before serving.
  • Pickles can be kept in the refrigerator for up to one month.
