roadside pickles

I took a walk before work and this jar of pickles was beside the hotel driveway just like that, quite a distance from the hotel. Bread and butter is one of my favorite varieties, but I’ll think I’ll let this jar go.

  1. The name “bread and butter pickles” makes me throw up in my mouth a little. Something about it just strikes me as repulsive. I can’t get past the name to even try them. Does that make me shallow?

    Dills, on the other hand…

    • The name is a little gross sounding. I think it hails from the depression era when people made sandwiches out of pickles. The pickles are a delightful recipe that I really enjoy. When I was a young teenager and had beehives, I could trade a jar of honey for a large jar of those pickles from a neighbor who really knew how to make them. She was a priceless cook.
