Sweet and Crunchy Deli-Style Pickles
For this homemade deli-style condiment, fresh cucumbers are pickled in vinegar and flavored with fresh ginger, jalapeños and garlic. To achieve the best flavor and sweetness, refrigerate jarred pickles for 4 to 5 days.

1 cup water
1/2 cup rice vinegar
1/3 cup Splenda® Granulated No Calorie Sweetener
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 whole clove
1 teaspoon mustard seed
1 teaspoon whole black peppercorns
1 teaspoon peeled, chopped fresh ginger
1/2 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
2 garlic cloves
- Place quartered pickles in a clean 1-quart canning jar. Set aside.
- Combine remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Simmer over low heat until salt dissolves.
- Pour hot pickling juice over pickles to fill jar. Cover tightly with lid and refrigerate 4 to 5 days before serving. Pickle flavor and sweetness intensity increase over time.
