Do you like pickles? Don’t be silly, of course you do. Did you know that you can make pickles in your own kitchen, and you don’t need any esoteric equipment or tons of time on your hands to do it? I made the batches above in, oh, fifteen minutes, and that’s because I was dawdling.
If you have a couple days, try making vinegar pickles. They’re great on sandwiches and with barbecue anything.
If you’re in a hurry and you want pickles right now, quick salt and sugar pickles only need about ten minutes in the fridge. I just snack on them as-is, but they’re also great with fatty meats like pork belly because they lend a freshness and crunch factor that matches well with unctuous viands.
