If y'all remember a couple of weeks ago I got some deals at Weis(PMITA)Markets.
Among those deals were pickles and Kool-Aid(among the flavors I got was cherry).
With all those jars of dill pickles sitting around here, it was inevitable that this would happen...............
Remove pickles from jar and retain brine.
Measure out Kool-Aid powder and pour into brine.
Seal lid and shake vigorousl until Kool-Aid dissolves.
Return pickles to jar and seal the lid.
"Grandma, what a nice unnatural red color you have turned!" lol
You have now made KOOLICKLES.
Open jar and eat them.
I made these because my Daughter made a remark about somebody at her work at made and brought these in but they didn't give her any to try.
So I made this batch the morning of the day Kim came to visit so they'd be ready by the time Daughter arrived on Sunday.
And that ungrateful child would NOT put one in her mouth and try them!
After seeing what they turned out to look like I have to say I don't blame her....lolz
But I got brave a couple of days ago and ate one............
Note the intrepid look on my face.....*snort*
Ok, I wasn't sure about doing this, but I was able to eat one as long as I didn't look at it. ;-)
My verdict-it's definitely an acquired taste.
If you like sweet and briny together you'll enjoy these.
It's sort of like eating a sweet and sour or bread and butter pickle, except for that cherry flavor thang going on with it too.
Maybe use a little less Koolaid/sugar next time except in my case, there won't be a NEXT time here.......
I do think that the McVal Household would enjoy this concoction and she should put it in her next Cheeseburger Pizza. 8-)
I would volunteer to send her my jar of Koolickles if she wants to try it on that recipe!
