With the end of August and the healthy abundance of fresh vegetables brings pickle time in our house! I can homemade pickles once a year and these are my family’s favorite pickles. I come from the Maritimes, and in those parts, these pickles are known as ‘mustard pickles‘ which is such a misnomer because I will let you in on a little secret…these pickles don’t taste like mustard! Like at all! They taste sweet and crunchy and make a delicious side dish to any meal where you might lick your lips for the taste of pickles. And part of the ritual is that you must save a bottle of pickles for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner!
