New ickles

Half sour pickles

Full sour pickles

Many thanks!

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".
