"russian" pickles

  • e

ever since i had the pickle plate at the russian vodka room i have been craving more of the same. the various slavic butchers in the east village have some (and the patipan (sp?) squash ones sure look interesting) but i haven't seen the ones from the plate that were the most especially delicious, plum tomato and apple. i checked online too. so, do i have to make those two kinds myself? if so, is it hard and does anyone have recipe(s) to relate?

thanks in advance.

    Easiest would be to go and pick some up on Brighton Beach (I like the M&I International Foods market)

        My husband seems to remember that they do have them.

    2. When i ate Cafe Klechik (Ukranian) on Coney island ave (near Brighton beach)....someone had a platter of (assorted) pickled items. I remember that she had pickled watermelon, but don't remember what the rest of it was (since I wasn't sitting anywhere near her.
