i have a secret to share. i have a strange nickname - it's pickle.
andre gave me that nickname because i love pickles. all sorts of pickles.
in japan there are so many different types of pickles and so many different vegetables get pickled. but my love for pickles isn't exclusive to japanese ones, i even love the lightly picked radish and carrots that you get at pho restaurants. that being said, dill pickles are at the top of my list (but only when it's home made - i hate those mushy ones at delis or sandwich shops).
so when shana presented me with her homemade, canned dill pickles in exchange for my crab apples, i could have cried.
my mom used to make homemade dill pickles but for some reason when i got into high school she stopped canning things. shana's pickles remind me of my mom's recipe. yum yum. i've been eating them as a snack these past 2 days.
maybe next year, i can sweet talk my way to get shana to teach me how to pickle!
