We’ve been snacking on this stuff for three days and still haven’t definitively decided if we really like it or not:
By and large, we do. But every so often there’s some funny back flavor (the kind you only tastes when you exhale after a bite) that makes us wonder.
In a few days I'll be snacking on these - my grandmother's "Quick Pickles". She said they were a cheat to get sweet, crisp pickles that were better than you could buy. Start with small kosher dills that you slice up:
Add sugar and vinegar:
and refrigerate and flip over every day until the sugar dissolves and "cures" the pickles. Crazy recipe, but she was right - these are better than any sweet pickle I've ever bought. I brought these up years ago, either here or at Chowhound (that tells you how long ago it was) and someone inquired in the snottiest tones possible, "So...you used PICKLES to make...PICKLES?"
