Thanks for the recipe! I think I'll try it.
It's not available in stores -- I have to mail-order it. I buy from Basically, sucralose is the "sweetening" ingredient in Splenda. Splenda is only a few calories if added to your coffee, but granular Splenda is 96 calories per cup, because of the starches in the product to make it measure like sugar. I don't like that! I want my sugar-free sweetener to be zero calorie! In recipes, those calories can really add up. The ez-sweetz version is sucralose in water, and it really is zero calories. 12 drops equal the sweetening power of a cup of sugar, approximately. It looks pricey, but a little goes a really long way.

Just to clarify - the recipe I posted is for a sugar-free "bread and butter" type pickle, the sweet/sour variety. Not like dill pickles, which is what the original poster was referring to.

Let me know if you like it!
