sweet pickles in baltimore

charmgirl Jun 30, 2008 07:36 PM

my aunt in north carolina cans sweet pickles, and i grew up eating them in potato salad and deviled eggs. while i have had good potato salad without, the home-canned sweet pickles are what i crave.

i've looked for them at the two baltimore farmer's markets (83 & waverly) but have only found homemade jams and jellies. have i overlooked a good pickle vendor? is there a tasty good store bought brand I should try?

      I've seen them at the Amish market in Burtonsville. I think they sell a couple brands - Jake & Amos and Barbie's.

        Try the Pennsylvania Dutch Market in Cockeysville/Hunt Valley. They carry a wide variety of pickles. One of my favorites is cinnamon pickles. They have chowchow and other delicious items. FoiGras

          There's a picle vendor at the downtown farmer's market (near the coffee and doughnut standa). Quite good pickles, lots of variety.
