My brother and I used to drink pickle juice straight out of the jar when we were kids, that's how much we love pickles. Happily, I have passed my pickle love on to my daughters. They especially have a fondness for Bubbie's Bread and Butter pickles. We can stand at the fridge plucking them right from the jar and shoving them into our mouths. Pickled vegetables, with their zing and zest, are just so satisfying.
Love this video in which the owner of local (to me) pickle shop talks all things salt-pickle. Fascinating.
