pickle guys' garlic pickle

stratford May 2, 2007 08:59 AM

I didn't see 'garlic' among the pickle choices online (thepickleguys), yet there have been people discussing them here. Is the garlic the same as the 'new' pickle, or the 'sour', or is it something else entirely?

    A "Sour" pickle is a garlic pickle. A half-Sour is a "new" pickle.

      Nope. A new pickle is just that, a cucumber that hasnt spent much time in the brine and still retains that cucumber crunch. Completely different type of pickle than a sour or half sour.

      The Pickle Guys have full sours & half sours & new pickles. They're all different, and they all involve garlic. A new pickle becomes a half sour and then a full sour depending on how long it is brined.

        If I make the trip is anything besides the pickles also worth getting?

          I think the full sours are the enough reason to go, but the olives are very good as are the cherry peppers, marinated mushrooms and kraut

            I'm a fan of the string beans. And the horseradish pickles. I keep mentioning to the Pickle Guys that I had some awesome horseradish pickles in Brighton Beach that were stained with beet juice, in the hopes that the Pickle Guys will start making them that way.

              I find the full sours too sour, and the half sours not sour enough. They do a 3/4 sour which I find to be the ideal balance.
