Pickllllles! Oh do I love pickles. Especially the ones you find at Yum! Kitchen any time you order one of their gourmet sandwiches. Have you tried their pickles? They’re bright green, crunchy and salty, and they’re tough to find anywhere else. Thus I decided to make some at home, so that we wouldn’t need to buy a sandwich every time we had a craving for one.
After a bit of research, I found that what helps these babies retain their color and crunchiness is that they’re actually soaked in saltwater rather than vinegar. Also known as half sour pickles, saltwater pickles need to be refrigerated, and also have a shorter shelf life than traditional vinegar pickles. But let’s be serious, their shelf life isn’t really an issue–they usually disappear within a few days!
