~Kg and I spent date-nitemakin' pickles. We used great grandam Bertie's basic recipe but we made some new combinations. I am so lovin' the fresh thyme we added, thanks to inspiration from a favorite local interior Mexican joint; El Meson. We used red onions..so very pretty! we made carrots and onions for tacos because I am am totally addicted to the pickled red onions on these local shrimp tacos. We also made pickled green beans...yum! who'd a thunk a green bean pickled could ad so much to my salad????not this crazy lass. Any ~who it was fun and we cracked open a jar last week( a wee bit early admittedly)They were well received. I am ready to make more!!! Pickles are so fun because you really feel like you have done something special but simple. I love the fun of waiting and then the reward of tangy goodness you can add to like everything.
