    I have been looking and looking...there is a farmers market that sold sweet/spicy pickles, for a while. I haven't been able to find anything comprable but I think this is going to be really close! I tried a batch starting w/ bread & butter pickles and adding jalapenos, garlic, red onion and red pepper flakes. They were pretty good but I think your recipe is the way to go. Thanks for a great post!
