Sweet and spicy dill pickle

This recipe is the results of many attempts making sweet and spicy pickles . When choosing pickles , everybody has their personal favourites, I like mine sweet , spicy with a lot of dill . I succeeded last year but unfortunately lost the recipe . I mine a batch of pickle in may but it was a total failure , so I decided to try again . This recipe tastes like the one form last year , so it is a success. I made 4 jars which is enough to last a few months knowing that you need to wait two weeks before eating the pickles.
