I was putting together some fun new recipes and one of them happened to be for these amazing garlic pickles. I have always been a fan of strange food combinations, so I laughed to myself one day thinking about the ‘oh so cliche’ pickles and ice cream theory. Apparently this dish is supposed to squelch all cravings and make a woman delightfully happy while she is baking a bun in that oven. Well there was no better time to find out because I was pretty darn pregnant and growing larger by the day. If it was going to be good, now was the prime time to check it out.
Now I knew the pickles were going to be out of this world awesome. They never disappoint. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that placing them on vanilla ice cream actually made them better! Something about the sweet vanilla cream paired with a salt brined cucumber just worked. To this day I think about having the combination when we have homemade pickles in the house, but they usually don’t last long enough for me to get to the store for some ice cream. I think I may need to hide a few pickles on the next batch ;)
