Does anybody remember a post about batamke pickles in the jar going bad and ways to tell if thier spoiled or good? these are great pickles, but tend to not have a good seal or something that makes them suspicious for bacteria. Anybody able to help?

    Correct spelling is "batampte." I vaguely remember the post, but I can't find it either. Good luck!

      Dont know the post you are talking about but the proper name of the pickles has two words. Ba Tempte

        All respect, but no.

          Oops, misspelled it (I blame the glass of scotch after dinner), but I stand by the two words, which is how I always see it referred to. Ba Tampte rather than Batampte.

            Yes, it's two words. But if traumachef wants to search Chowhound for those two words, as s/he suggests, s/he'll make them one word, as I did. It's faster, and the results are better.

      I've wondered about the same thing. The jars of pickles on the grocer's shelves will leak if they're tilted. But they really are good pickles, so I usually look at the dates stamped on the lid and choose a jar with the date that's farthest out.
