Pickled asparagus, pickled peppers, cauliflower, carrots... :drool:
All are good but I especially love pickled asparagus. I keep wanting to try pickling my own vegetables.

OK this one is the balls to the wall of the pickling universe:

Pig's Feet—yummmmmmm!
I love Pig's Feet!  No one made it like my grandmother.  And I think you are the only person I've encountered as an adult that likes it too.

You will have to consult someone who is Jewish as to the answer to that question.

I just eat the pickles.

I wouldn't bet on them being found, but I will look tomorrow.  Just one of the many major adjustments I had to make when I moved here was finding substitutes for all of the things I could easily buy back there that they never heard of out here.

Yeah I was pretty stunned to find Vlasic products at the Publix stores here in FL.  Most of them stock Mount Olive, which makes some good pickles and condiments, but not a good Polish style dill.

BTW, the difference between Polish style and Jewish or Kosher style is the pickling brine. Jewish brine is water, salt, garlic, and pickling spices. while Polish style adds vinegar to the brine.
