So, as I mentioned here I canned a few pints of garlic dill pickles about a week ago. At the time my husband mentioned that he normally wasn't a big fan of homemade pickles. That's fine, because I knew something he didn't - my Grandma made the best pickles ever and nobody can resist these!
We had to wait a whole week before they were ready to try, and I broke open a pint this weekend. My husband tried one... and announced that he really liked them! HOORAY! SUCCESS! *Cue pickle dance*
These pickles are made using whole, small cucumbers so they stay very crunchy since the structural integrity (yeah, I just used that phrase about PICKLES) stays intact. That plus a bunch of garlic pretty much equals win.
YAY for pickles!
