Hello!!

I want to make pickles using little cornichons, but I haven't found them anywhere! I found something that looked like them at one of the Asian markets a few weeks ago, but no one could translate what they actually were for me. So I'm wondering, has anyone found them this year and if you have, where? Thanks!!

    I found some tiny pickling cukes at my local (Crystal City) farmer's market. The vendor had actually set them aside from all of their others, and I bought them all. So, check your local farmer's market. A lot of the vendors have pickling cucumbers right now.

      Thanks!! I'll have to do some more scrounging then. Where's the farmer's market you frequent?
