If you are looking for something different to can this summer, check out these red hot cinnamon sweet pickles. Made with the candy Red Hots these will have a cinnamon flavor and a red color. Paula shared the recipe with SB Canning and says these pickles are also known as Christmas Pickles. I would say this is due to the gorgeous red color. The recipe makes 7 pints of pickles and calls for 7 cups of sugar so I think these will be pretty sweet, although it is stated that if there is red hot syrup left over it can be saved and used for something else like a vinaigrette.
I have never tried these so I am not sure whether I would like them or not. I love dill pickles but I have never been fond of sweet pickles. I know a lot of people love sweet pickles so I thought for the folks that do love sweet pickles I would share the recipe. These might make a good gift at Christmas for the people in your life that like sweet pickles. I love the red color of them.
