These spicy/sweet pickles are a Texas tradition. My mother and I have made these delectable pickles for Christmas every year since I was young. We separate each batch into smaller jars and give them as gifts to friends and family. I would hate to think what would happen if we skipped a year!
This recipe was fun and easy to make. The flavor is similar to bread and butter pickles, but with a little extra kick.
