Remove the pickles from the jar and slice them 1/2" thick. I used a crinkle cutter for this, but you can use a knife.
Place slices in large bowl.
Pour juice from the jar over the slices.
Add remaining ingredients and stir with a spoon until the sugar is dissolved.
Let them sit on the counter covered with wax paper for 24 hours, stirring 6-7 times during the 24 hours.
Put pickles back in the jar and pour as much juice as will fit over the top of the pickles.
Store in the fridge.
