A friend gave me a big pile of green cherry tomatoes.
I thought pickling them would be a great way to preserve them. I thought pickling them in beer was an even better idea. Because everything is better with beer. Right?
My version of Brooklyn Brine Co.'s "Hop Pickles"; except mine is made with Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA. Super easy, super quick, super delicious.
Pickles and beer, together at last. The subtle malt and bitterness of beer adds another dimension to garlicky, spicy, assertive cukes.
