I am a long-time lover of sour pickles; sweet pickles being a food I can never understand. My earliest memory of getting in trouble with my Mom was when I accidentally dumped a jar of pickle juice on the couch cushions. Apparently sneaking a jar of pickles while sitting on the couch wasn’t such a good idea for a five-year-old.
Since then I have expanded my pickle horizons, to say the least. While my favorite kosher pickles are still chocked full of garlic and hot pepper, they’re also fermented. I also like to vary my pickling vegetables. Cucumbers are great but I also find radishes, beets, and carrots make a nice addition to sandwiches.
Or snack on them from the comfort of your couch… just be careful with the pickle juice.
