Pickle report

Not long ago I was singing the praises of Paulie's Pickles, a fine fresh pickle in a tangy-spicy light vinegar brine. But when it comes to a pickle I can be fickle, especially when the new contender is as good as Sonoma Brinery's Manhattan Style Fresh Pickles. These are the real deal, fermented in brine without vinegar, just some spices and the natural tang provided by the fermentation process. Mild, with a nice snap. It's hard for me to imagine a better basic cucumber pickle. They are ridiculously expensive for a damn pickle, but you're worth it, aren't you? And they are probiotic, so (if you believe in that sort of thing) it will make you healthier. A sense of wellbeing certainly comes over me after consuming one of these... or two... or three...
