ISO: Sweet Spicy Pickle Recipe ALA Tony Packo's
I'm addicted to Tony Packo's Pickles. While they are not impossible to get in LA they are hard to find and a bit pricey though not as pricey as the $12 jar of bread and butters found at the recent Renegade Craft Fair in LA.
I've never Pickled anything. A friend sent her Indiana grandma's recipe which starts with a jar of Valasic Dills. I'm not sure that is the direction I want to go I was thinking of starting with Alton Brown's Sweet and Spicy recipe to see how I do and to see if it comes close.
If anyone has suggestions or recipes, I'd be grateful.
I'm midwest (Ohio) based and have access to Packo's pickles at any local store mostly.
I assume you mean the "Sweet Hots" ?
I keep them around year long.
I've got a local Farmers Mkt pickler that has a similar pickle mix.
I can ask but who knows if she'll give up the recipe.
I've also got a local pickler that does a mean Chow Chow that is both spicy and sweet.
