Katz' Sweet Pickles

Bologna Jul 15, 2014 03:01 PM

i love them so much and followed a Sweet Pickle recipe found on allrecipes. But they're not quite right (too sweet). Anyone good at guessing how Katz does their sweet pickles? I will ask directly next time I drop in there but maybe someone on the forum can hip me to the how before that next time..?

    Sweet?...do you mean 'half-sours'...the right green really crunchy ones?

        They are simply brined for a shorter period of time than the full sours or 3/4 sours. They can also be called new pickles.

        My guess is Katz's doesn't cure their own pickles, but it's not hard to find a recipe.

            Exactly.

        Sounds like you started with the wrong recipe, follow one for kosher dill pickles and instead of brining for a week (for example) taste them at 3 or 4 days. They are just dill pickles that aren't cured for very long.

        No sugar in the recipe!

          Well, they're not necessarily dill pickles...unless the brine/cure contains dill!

            The only pickles worth eating are dill! ;)
            First time i made my own i used too much star anise and not enough dill and was stuck with a bunch of star ansie flavored pickles.... Not yummy.
