Sour pickles? Any sour pickles out there?
Sour pickles are my most favorite food. So much so that I just googled them, found some for sale on eBay, and had to be talked down from the purchase of food products from "some random dude online" by my ever-practical boyfriend.
I've read all about Guss' pickles in NY, but I live in New Orleans, and a gallon of Guss' pickles shipped to my house costs about $75...plus, I am then the proud owner of a GALLON of pickles. And, let's face it, a gallon of pickles in a two person home can't go that fast...even if one of us could eat several a day. (And just how does one store an open gallon of pickles, anyway? Must they be refrigerated?)
So, my question/issue is clear: are there any sour pickles available in my region? Am I forced to be an online pickle consumer for life? And, if I must choose this technologically-advanced option, where are the best sour pickles in the country that will deliver to my door in NOLA?
Thanks for your help!
Head over to Kosher Cajun Deli; multiple pickles are served with each sandwich, and the attached small kosher grocery has a variety of pickles for sale. I'm partial to the pickled green tomatoes & pickled red peppers (can't remember the brand).
Have you tried Cochon's bread & butter pickles? Full of allspice...super delicious, but a bit pricey.
I don't know if you have ever tried them, but super Walmart sells sour pickles, Mt. Olive brand, in pint jars, at least they do in southern Mississippi anyway. You might be looking for a more upscale brand, but these aren't too bad, and cheap also.
