    My wife picked up some "bargin" pickles at the local Dals store. The name was Eden Garden. They said Kosher dills. They were on the small side aroubd2-3' and as big around as my thumb. When I tasted one I was very impressed. They were crisp, garlicky and not salty. All together mellow and tasty. I happened to look at the label. PRODUCT of INDIA. Kormangala,BAngalore.
    Yikes, I never would have bought them. My wife put one one the side with my hot dog. If I had read the label they probably would have stayed on the shelf for a few years or until the next church food drive.
    As it is I bought another jar,
    I am still very leary about food products produced in third world countries. If an industrialized nation like china can't even make catfood woth out poisoning our pets whats a backward nation where sanitation is a joke gonna do with edibilles.

    Half sour pickles are basically minimally "pickled" cucumbers--they haven't been in the brine very long--and are actually far and away my favorite. They tend to be crispier/crunchier than full sours which are standard dill pickles. I never heard of an "ickle".
