Sunday a friend is coming over to show me how to dye yarn with packets of (unsweetened) Kool-Aid. While searching online for color-combinations and instructions, I ran across a reference tor Kool-Aid pickles.
Intrigued (and a little disturbed) I googled "Kool-Aid Pickles," and found several recipes. There are three Basic ingredients - dill pickles, sugar, and Kool-Aid packet(s), and an optional fourth ingredient, water (if you're replacing some or all of the brine).
You start with a jar of dill pickles and drain the pickles. You then mix your Kool-Aid, sugar and liquid (the pickle brine, water, or some combination of the two). The proportions of sugar/Kool-Aid/pickle juice/water vary by recipe - and how sweet and how sour you want the finished pickle.
Initially, I was really turned-off by the idea, but now I'm thinking of trying them, only replacing the sugar with Splenda - or replacing the Kool-Aid and sugar with Crystal Light.
So has anyone eaten these pickles (either made with artificial sweetner or with sugar)?
I think I might try them with jalapenos replacing the dill pickles (I just bought a huge jar of pickled jalapenos at Sam's Club).
