Topeka Pickle Recipe
I am on a quest for a pickle recipe: They called them "Topeka Pickles" and were sold at the Kansas City Barbecue in San Diego. The pickles were dipped out of a big jar and were sold whole, not quartered or sliced. First time you bite into one, you immediately get this intense horseradish vapor rush, and think your head is gonna explode. Then the effect quickly goes away, with no unpleasant after effects. Once you know what to expect, these are fun to eat, go great with beer, barbeque, etc.
I've tried recipies for "horseradish pickles" found on the internet, tried soaking pickles in horseradish, nothing seems to work. There was no sweet taste to Topeka Pickles, no other taste in fact except horseradish. I hope someone here can give me some guidance about how to make these suckers -- thanks!
