Call me crazy, but I just paid $12 for a jar of pickles. Yep, I'm a freak!
All of you know that I am a big foodie. I was watching Food Network last week and saw one of my favorite shows - "The Best Thing I Ever Ate." It was a show about the best snack food ever. Ted Allen raved about:
McClure's Pickles - www.mcclurespickles.com
It's a family-owned business near Detroit, and each jar is hand packed by the family and a few of their workers. The pickles only come in 2 flavors - spicy and garlic dill. Once you eat the pickles, you can actually slice cucumbers into the leftover brine, let it sit for a couple weeks, and you've got more pickles!
I happened to be in our local Williams-Sonoma store yesterday, and behold - there were the pickles! Being the idiot foodie that I am, I forked out $12 to try these pickles. YUM! They're crunchy deliciousness! I got the garlic dill, because I'm not a fan of spicy, but Ted raved about them. You can actually get them for $10/jar on their website, but you have to pay shipping, and they only sell by the case.
Would I pay $12 again for these pickles? Probably not. But Iíll be sure to buy some cukes and make more as long as I can!
