Grandma’s Society Chips
From Danyelle

When I  was younger my Grandma (Barb Metzer) use to baby sit me. She use to make me tuna fish sandwiches with these "candy pickles" in them. They were bright green and so sweet and yummy! My grandma passed away in 2007 of lung cancer at age 74. In 2008, my husband and I bought our first home and in 2009 planted our first garden. I planted pickling cucumbers to try my grandma’s sweet pickles recipe - they were fantastic! And I couldn’t keep them around long enough. This year I planted 8 pickling cucumber plants and have ended up doing 10 gallons of pickles so far this year. I have experimented with dill and bread and butter pickles also. But nothing can beat my Grandma’s Society Chips. Anyone who likes sweet pickles should give this a try!
