    Grandpas Half Sour Pickles! This recipe for Grandpa’s Half Sour Pickles is one that was handed down through the generations of our family and is definitely one of my favorites!

    I have so many fond memories of the times I spent visiting Grammie and Grandpa’s house. My grandfather was a lover of nature and was the best gardener I have ever seen. (My mom being a very close second. Of course, she did learn from him.) Every year he would grow the most magnificent vegetables in a small garden that was in a long patch of earth beside his house. The sun beat down on this area all day long and the plants grew to mammoth sizes. I looked forward to when his pickling cucumbers were finally ready because I knew he and Grammie would be making their delicious half sour pickles. He talked about how he used to pickle cucumbers back in Lithuania with his grandfather when he was a little boy. They used to add an oak leaf to the jar to keep the pickles crisp. My mom and I decided to try this technique out and added one to ours.
