It's kind of a southern thang. First off, I do not have much of a sweet tooth. I am more of a meat and potatoes guy myself, but I remember my grandmother making these in the summer and they were too sweet for my liking. So give them a try!
Those pickles haunted Cathy Barrow for years and it wasn’t until she discovered a note in her grandmother’s recipe cards detailing a technique more than a recipe -- a seven day process -- that she tasted them again.
These pickles are fantastic in so many things! I like doing pickled onions as a Winter project when fresh fruits become scarce. Some of my family members get genuinely excited when these pickles appear in their holiday gift bags.
