Sweet dill pickles

It's picnic season so I know I better have some of my "homemade" sweet dill pickles in the frig at all times. My kids all love them.
First I buy a jar of cheap whole dill pickles. I was told to use whole pickles so that's what I do. I've never tried sliced ones.
Pour off the juice and cut the pickles into slices.
Cover completely with sugar. Shake it down so it covers all the slices .
Cover and stick in the frig for a couple weeks and until the sugar is dissolved. You can tip it upside down a couple times during that time.
Now tell everyone that they are your "homemade" sweet dill pickles! If you like sweet pickles you will love them.
Bring on the hot dogs, hamburgs and potatoe salad! I'm all ready for a picnic!
