Cleopatra thought eating pickles was what kept her beautiful. I’m going to eat more pickles.
Last summer I posted a video on ODL Instagram of our pickling experience after buying bags of cucumbers from a local farmer. They stored jars in our cool basement didn’t last long. We were going through two jars at a time.
My obsession with pickles didn’t wain. It’s winter and I’m still eating the briny fruit. Wait! Did I just refer to them as a fruit? Yes! Pickles are technically a fruit of the vine like tomatoes, but are known as a vegetables according to the U.S. Supreme Court. (Why they are responsible for solving this mystery is well, a mystery. I thought they had important court cases to review?)
My Tangy Dill Pickle Cream Cheese Spread recipe can be made in less than 10 minutes and goes equally well on a toasted bagel in the morning or on a water crisp cracker thin when guests come over. You could even spread it on sandwich bread instead of mayonnaise and stack it will sliced corned beef or roasted chicken. The dill-flavored possibilities are endless! Your spread will be ready in 10 minutes. Now, that’s easy!
