What are Kool-Aid Pickles?
If you cant figure out by the name itself Kool Aid Pickles are pickles that are soaked in a pickle juice, Kool Aid and sugar combination and brined for about a week. They take on a deep red, purple or blue color depending on the flavor of Kool Aid used.
How do you make Kool-Aid Pickles?
Like state above these pickles are made with pickle juice, Kool aid and sugar. The most popular flavors of Kool Aid used are Tropical Punch and Cherry. But you can use pretty much any flavor that you like.
The sugar and Kool Aid are whisked into the pickle juice and then poured back over the pickles and placed in the refrigerator for about 1 week. Shaking every day to make sure that the brine is evenly distributed so that the pickles can take on the flavor and color of the Kool Aid used.
