For all you doubters my friend Antoinette made this pie and sent me the picture.
My next desserts with pickles challenge thanks to Linda Seccaspina who knows I can’t resist. But I think I will try a combo of sweet and sour pickles finely chopped with crystallized ginger; that will make a lovely carmelized crust. The pickles in the photo don’t even look cooked. All y’all going ewww are gonna be sorry!
So not content, I searched far and wide for another pickle pie recipe and found this beauty. Would Antoinette try this one too? I loved it!! —after all… A ‘naughty pickle’ is how I’d best describe myself.
The UTAH PICKLE PIE
UPDATE So yesterday I posted a pickle pie recipe and said I needed to make it because well–pickle, pie, it was a direct challenge. Some of you laughed, some of you scoffed. But I shall have the last laugh because it is FABULOUS!! It’s like a sugar cream pie with the sweet pickles carmelizing the top.
This morning I got an email from a producer at WHDH TV in Boston—“Hi LInda, I’m a producer at 7News in Boston. This recipe is taking over the internet! Can we please use the photo of your Cranberry Pickle Pie on air and online with courtesy to you? Thanks!”So let this go to show you– it does not matter how hard and long you work on history pieces, or columns or anything like that. When it comes down to it– you don’t need to pose naked…Pickle Pie will get them every time LOLOL
and it made FOX news…
Twitter Can’t Believe The 2 Ingredients In This Thanksgiving Pie
The now-viral cranberry pickle pie is exactly what it sounds like — a traditional cranberry pie topped with pickle slices. It’s garnered a lot of attention on Twitter, as people have responded to what many think is a horrendous, disgusting combination — and an abomination that doesn’t deserve a spot on the Thanksgiving dessert table. “Never heard of that before. Not sure that I want to again,” one person commented, while another wrote, “Hell no would I eat this, it sounds horrible.” Even celebrity chefs Alex Guarnaschelli and Duff Goldman have Tweeted their disapproval of the pie. read more here….
My Grandmother’s house always had a distinct smell. No, it wasn’t that classic “grandma smell– it was her pickles. Your Grandmother’s pickles. The best pickles on the planet!
They were spicy, crunchy, and packed with flavour unlike any pickles sold in the grocery store. Grammy’s life was a lot like her pickles– zesty and full of spice. She was also a classic grandma and loved to eat and feed her loved ones.
Sometimes she served a leg of lamb. Sometimes she served Mocha Cakes–but she always served some of her homemade pickles. These pickles from Chridomar Gardens from The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market are Grandma’s pickles. In fact, in a blind taste test, I probably wouldn’t know the difference between hers and another version.
This is their eighth year selling at local farmer’s markets. They specialize in jams/jellies and pickles of all kinds. They even have mustards, relishes and salsas. They use home grown veggies or buy locally. There are no insecticides or chemicals in these babies! Stop by their booth at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market– as they say.. they be jammin!
