Ive never learned to like any pickles Saur Kraut or Kimchi over salted. I will often get a jar of garlic dills, remove half the brine and replace with a 2T suga solution. It takes about a week to brighten up in the fridege but the garlic has a new dimension and the pickles are great.
Vlasick makes a type thats close . I think its a kind of sweet hot dill gherkin. Also it crispy without all the metl sulfate salts
