Okay - i am really just trying to settle a debate here. My girlfriend insists that it was perfectly normal for her to have pickles with peppermint sticks shoved inside of them when she was young. She's from Chicago, so I don't know if this is normal.
It sounds disgusting. She also has a habit of not remembering things quite right.
Any thoughts? Is this normal anywhere? Does this sound vaguely like anything anyone would ever want to eat?
I read this and just had to google it - it was to gross to be real. It seems they do exist - who would have thought! From what I read online they seem to be an African American recipe (many of the articles that came up referenced Black History month).
Try your own search - you may be able to find a recipe. I also came across another food chat board that referenced peppermint pickles, so you're not the only non-beliver, as it were.
Yes it's so.Pickles and Pepermint make a great pair.Actually I was looking for them or a recipe,and found this forum. It was a fond childhood memory that got me searching for them.
We used to put a peppermint stick in an orange, and suck out the juice. Ah what memories. but no pickles and mints...
