I would like to make sweet pickles, but I am diabetic. Can I use an artificial sweetener?

Rating: 85

The best approach is to take dill pickles slices, rinse to remove the salty flavor, and sprinkle with artificial sweetener. Allow these to sit in the refrigerator at least 30 minutes before use. Substituting artificial sweeteners for the sugar in sweet pickle recipes is not recommended. Source: Original FAQ posted at
