In the meantime, I will share the pickles I have been eating all week, this is another of those 'summer memory' foods.
Grandma made pickles or cucumber salad with most of her cucumbers but she had so many plants that quite a few of the cukes would get too big for pickle jars, these were the crock dill cukes and we all waited with baited breath till these were ready. I will share that there are several of these comfort foods that you must have to be born to to like, as my Mom and my Aunt C (married Daddy's brother) neither one ever developed a taste for some of these foods that we who grew up with them dream of! These taste a lot like the pickles you get at a kosher deli, and they probably are similar as they are essentially a brine pickle.
You just never know what will happen around here! :)
