Black Cherry Dill Pickles?...

This condiment is unusual and has awesome taste. I served them at a recent dinner party...the guests loved them!  They taste kind of like a bread and butter pickle, with a slight black cherry taste.
 The way I see it ... if they can infuse olive oil, make wine... blending all types of flavors, whatever it might be! Then WHY can't I try this? I found and old recipe (old to some, not to me:) from the 60's using Kool-aid drink mix! 
YES, Kool-aid! 
So, I tried it! I made a few changes, nothing big,...turned out... YUM-ee!
Littles things like; substitute sugar for splenda or stevia, etc. and BLACK Cherry Kool-aid instead of Cherry Kool-aid. 
See the recipe below.
 I know,...you're thinking you're not sure about this one. Well, it's just a jar of pickles and a pack of kool-aid...go for it...you just might be surprised!
 Black Cherry Pickles
1 jar (48oz) whole dill pickles, your choice of brand
1 package of black cherry kool-aid mix
1 cup of stevia (*I used this instead of sugar)
See directions below...
 Drain the juice from the pickles into a bowl or pitcher
Add 1 package of kool-aid and 1 cup of stevia
Blend together, mixing well and set aside...
Cut the whole pickles, in half, lengthwise.
Place pickles back into the original jar.
Pour the black cherry-dill juice back into the jar, covering the pickles.
 Store the pickles in the refrigerator for one week. I dated the top of the jar to remind me of the "ready-to-eat" date.
 Once you taste these pickles, next time, it will be harder to wait a week!
