are pickles even good?
I have never just ate a pickle straight up, what the fuck is up with that
I have a jar of pickle shots in my kitchen.
I love it. Can't taste vodka at all.
Only problem is all the pickles from making it. I can never eat them fast enough.
I use about a handle at first to about a gallon of juice. Then add more vodka to taste. I also add home made pickled jalapeño peppers. After the first batch. I just keep adding to it to always keep it about half full.
I don't usually like whole pickles but I love pickle spears.
Heh. I see what you did there.
I like pickles, whole or not. They're bretty good. And I know for a fact German people are crazy about them and eat them whenever they can. They even say when a woman eat a lot of pickle this is a hint she's pregnant
First time I ever had a pickle back as a chaser was Germany. Shit was life changing.
< be me
< be 15
< love pickles
< first job as dishwasher at shitty bar/resturaunt in shitty small town
< restaraunt pickles arrive in five gallon buckets
<last pickle is gone, just pickle juice left in bucket
< two line cooks bet me that i cant drink all the pickle juice
< how much?
< they bet me all the cash they had on them combined.
< probably around sixty bucks.
< no problem
< grab a soup bowl and begin to scoop pickle juice out of bucket and drink it
< probably finish 12 bowls
< not feeling well
< drank half of the leftover juice, maybe more
< manager is now interested and in on the bet
< the pot increases by $100
< dunk more and more bowls into the bucket, tummy not feeling so good.
< I finally tap out
< easily drank more than a galon of pickle juice, but didn't finish the bucket
< no money for me
< go home early, didnt finish shift
< fucking barf my rains out for 2 days
< the acidic pickle juice eats my fucking stomach alive
< cant eat pickles for 10 years
< even smelling pickles makes me gag
Can anyone recommend a hotter pickle? Pic related is delicious but i want more heat.
Was it young pride that made you do it, or did you genuinely think you could drink over a gallon of acidic juices? Drinking a gallon of water is far too much to begin with, let alone pickle juice.
Dont eat a pickle before bed OP, they give you nightmares
Everyone who's anyone knows they're actually called GHERKINS, Amerifats.
Pickles are literally the most ambivalence-inducing food item on the planet.
Are they bad? No. Kinda weird by themselves.
Are they particularly good? Fuck no. Soaking anything in salt water and spices is bound to make anything taste at least passable.
It's like the laziest, least inventive culinary technique ever.
