Pick your pickle poison

What kind of pickles do you like and what do you like to eat them with?

I love bread and butter pickles and hamburger dill pickles, those are my two favorites for plain pickle snacking.

I used to work in this restaurant that served an appitizer with pate, sweet pickles, red onions, baby eggplant and bread. Yum! So many great combinations could be made from those ingredients but I especially loved the pate and sweet pickle combo.

What about you?

@boomerang,
We make a refrigerator sweetish and garlicky dill pickle. Its vera crunchy and goes well with reubens.
I like the little gherkins (cornichons) with pate and crispy bread.

@farmerman,
I like all pickles - sweet, dill, small large- I will and have chosen a big garlic dill pickle (from a barrel) for a snack instead of candy bars or twinkies since I was a child.I like all pickles - sweet, dill, small large- I will and have chosen a big garlic dill pickle (from a barrel) for a snack instead of candy bars or twinkies since I was a child.
But a wonderful new taste sensation I've discovered is: Branston pickle.


I completely ignored it on my ploughmans' platter (ham or cheese, crusty bread, butter, salad, onions, and apple and maybe grapes or something) for several months because I didn't know what it was, but one day I was making my simple little bread, butter, cheese and apple sandwich and someone asked me for my pickle if I wasn't going to use it and I thought - I should at least try it - and yeah - that's awesome.
Also good with ham, apple, and butter on a nice, crusty dense piece of good bread.

I love homemade bread & butter pickles with just the right amount--not too much--sweetness and done to just the right amount of crispness and preferably pickled together with a bit of onion and sweet peppers. Some store bought are okay but can't compare to the homemade.

I don't want dill pickles on sandwiches or burgers but prefer cold, crisp dill gerkins on the side if I'm going to have dill.

A nice crisp dill. Can't stand the sweet ones - most likely because of :

I once ate almost a half jar of those sickenly sweet pickles when I was child. I then had a stomach ache (surprise surprise). My dad tried to help and gave me an alker selzer - immediately after I drank the thing down, I puked all over the floor. It helped - I felt much better. Dad cleaned it up. Ah sweet memories.

@boomerang,
Pickles?
Yes, thank you.

Why, yes I'll have another. And some of those too.

Vietnamese pickled carrots.
Syrian pickled turnips.
Bread and butter.
Onions - sweet.
Dill, half-sour.
Dill, full sour.
Fresh dill.
Garlic dill. I used to keep a gallon jar of them on the speaker I used as a night stand in university. Garlic dills make great midnight snacks.
Peperoncini.

What else ya got?

On the weekend, I took Set to Harvey's for July 4th. Burgers, eh.

He knew to ask for a side of their dills to be packaged up for me.
I always ask for their dills on the side. I eat them as an appetizer before the burger. Good with their fries too.

Do you want those pickles?



oooh, and we both really like the dill relish somebody makes

Funny I saw on the news last night this pickle guy in Boston common. It is called grillos pickles and they have a cart where they sell pickles.

@boomerang,
This thread is like the oral version of an earworm.

It seems I'm now fascinated by pickles. I loved many of them before, but now, if there's a new pickle on offer, I've got to try it.

... and then there was Saturday morning, when I spent nearly 15 minutes talking about pickles with some random person in the grocery store. We were both roaming up and down in front of the shelves of pickles, trying to decide, trying to decide ...

@ehBeth,
Ha! The last time I was at the grocery I bought pickled okra and pickled green beans. I'd had them both before so it wasn't a new thing but it tasted new since I don't buy them often.

I've even done a bit of reading about the art of pickleing. I don't intend to do it but it is far more complicated and comprehensive than I thought.

@boomerang,
I am not going to take up pickling. Too much work. I can recall the hamburgers doing it at times. Lotsa work.

I'm trying to find a source for good sweet pickled cauliflower florets. I can't keep buying big jars of sweet mixed pickles just because I want the cauliflower and onions. The onions I sourced. Now ... the cauliflower florets ...
