Recipe Notes

Why the sugar?! I get this question A LOT. Simple answer...because I like how it tastes. Longer answer...when small amounts are used in savory dishes, it's actually a fantastic ingredient that not only lends flavor, but balances out other ingredients, just like salt does.

So, then people suggest I use sweet pickle relish instead. 1) sweet pickle relish also contains sugar, so I don't really see the difference in that regard, and 2) I prefer dill pickles. 

You certainly can omit the sugar! It just won't be the way this recipe was intended.
