Kool-aid Pickles? Oh Yeah!
What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever done with a pickle?
According to this NYT article, if you’re under the age of ten and live South of the Mason-Dixon line, you’ve probably eaten a kool-aid one. (True or false, Dixie correspondents?)
As the co-inventor of the Pickletini, I’m in no position to look down my nose at what anyone else chooses to do with the great green gourd, but this sounds a little far out. I would definitely give it a try though. It also got me thinking – how else could you mix up the old pickle brine? Jalapeno pickles? Lemon? Wasabi? Hmm…we might have to put a brining contest on our to-do list.
I am a big fan of all things pickle, and have been known to make them into an entire meal. Besides the few years I lived in Pittsburgh (there’s a deli that has all you can eat koshers) I have lived below the mason dixon line where I have NEVER heard of a kool-aid pickle. I will keep my ears out, but I too am suspect.
Would you believe we have created Jalapeño Pickle Pops!
If you’re a big fan of all things pickle…like I am…have you ever wondered how they determine the coveted “snap” that a truly fresh pickle makes? If so, check out this quirky video showing a pickle snap test…
