aka Christmas Pickles. A jar of these come dressed for Christmas with the crushed red pepper flakes among the green pickle slices. This sweet and slightly hot pickle is fantastic on roast meat, cold cut or meatloaf sandwiches. It also complements corned beef beautifully. Unless you live in Amish country you’re not likely to be able to find these in the stores very easily. A jar of these pickles makes a wonderfully unique and tasty gift. Be prepared to share the recipe!
The fact that the recipe is super simple to make -starting with store bought pickles- and don’t require boiling water or pressure canning adds to its charms.
