These pickles are straight from the family of Paula Dean! Paula remembers her Grandmother Paul always had homemade pickles in her refrigerator. She would make them in a stone crock and put a plate on top to hold them down and act as a lid. They always tasted so good on a pimento cheese sandwich or straight out of the crock.
