i've found some kosher pickles in the city as good as gus or maybe better.
Paterson Pickle Company sells at street fairs in the city right out of the barrel. they are delicious. i'm on their maling list and i just got an email that tey're last fair of the season is this sunday nov. 10th and they will be on 37th and lexington.
I haven't had a truly Kosher pickle since I was a boy in Williamsburg Brooklyn in the 40s..I've had pickles that claim to be kosher. I see the OU on thelabel but I'm a goy..what do I know..I know pickles..I love ba-tempte which is the closest thing I could find where I leave..read the attached response to a message from 9/2001..I just noticed the date after I sent it , so here it is again;
three/four years ago, I went on the atkins diet..all meats and fats..one of the only carbs i could touch was pickles..since then, i've been on several diets..currently, the ornish veg diet..i still knock off 2 jars of ba-tempte a week..mainly half sours but in a pinch, the garlic dills.,
we have a cat...he has FIV..like HIV but for cats only..he doesn't eat anything but the Science diet..he cant smell any thing because of the FIV..toss him some raw beef, chicken or any cooked meat, he plays with it..cant smell it..wont eat it..I just discovered recently, after I have my usual 2 pickle ration each night,I put the saucer on the floor and my cat comes over and licks the pickle juice till the plate is dry..aint that a kick..and the little puss doesn't even look Jewish..
Actually Paterson Pickle used to supply Gus's. Your'e right, Paterson Pickles are the best, and they are back out at the street fairs again. You can't miss them. as they are a bit meshuga.
