Southern Kool-Aid Pickles


    My kids and I love these Southern Kool-Aid pickles.  I have been making these for my kids since the late '90's.  They are sweet and sour at the same time and are super refreshing.  

  • 1 (32 oz.) jar of dill pickles (I used spears but slices work also)
  • 1 envelope of Kool-Aid (I like using cherry, tropical punch or grape the best)
  • 1/4-2/3 c. sugar (depending on your own personal tastes)


     These pickles are super simple to make but take about a week to be fully ready to be enjoyed. To make:  drain the juice out of the jar of pickles but drain them into a bowl because you will need the juice.  

    Now, stir in the envelope of Kool-aid and the sugar into the bowl of pickle juice.  Stir well and pour the juice back into the jar over the pickles.  Put the lid on and shake well.

    Put the pickles into your refrigerator and leave them in there for at least a week.  Be sure to shake the jar up every 2 days.  After a week you can start enjoying them.  They can last about 2 months in the refrigerator but they'll probably be gone much sooner than that!
