  • 32- ounce jar whole dill pickles kosher are fine
  • Pickle juice from the jar of pickles
  • 2 packets of unsweetened powdered drink mix
  • 1 cup sugar


  • Remove pickles from jar and place on a cutting board. Add sugar and powdered drink mix to juice in the jar. Replace lid on pickle jar and shake until sugar is dissolved. Cut pickles into halves or quarters and place back into the jar. Do this over a sink to prevent staining counter tops, clothes, cabinets, appliances, and anything else in the path. Replace lid and place into refrigerator for at least 1 day. Flavor and color should be fully established in 3 days.


The color and flavor for these pickles between days 3 and 7 were the same.
