To be honest, my aunt's recipe does not list what size jar of pickles to use. It just says large jar of pickles. The best I can remember, I use a 46 oz. jar of large whole dill pickles. I like to use the large whole pickles and cut them into bite size pieces, but you can just as easily used the hamburger slices, if you want.
With this being Super Bowl Sunday, if you are in need of just one more appetizer, you might want to give this one a try.
Sweet Pickles from Dill Pickles46 oz. jar of whole dill pickles
2 C. sugar
1 t. celery seed
4 T. vinegar
Pour dill juice out of jar. Slice or chop pickles to desired size and place back in jar. Add sugar, celery seed, and vinegar. Replace lid and turn the jar until sugar has dissolved. The pickles will make their own juice. Store in refrigerator until serving time.
