Snappy Horseradish Dill Pickles

These pickles are a great last-minute gift because they are so easy to make-a little horseradish adds zip to a jar of purchased pickles. They're in hot demand at Christmas! My husband and three grown sons can't get enough of them.

    Zesty, indeed! Great recipe! I cut the sugar in half and added some red pepper flakes. Will definitely make these often.
