Some 'Put Some South in Your Mouth' pickled favorites –
Pickled watermelon rind
And one of my absolute favorite pickled foods is without a doubt, Pickled Herring! I’ve never made it or had the opportunity to have fresh locally made batches some people can get where fishing is big business in their area and everything is fresh and abundant – only the jarred kind from the grocery. I’m sure there are far better brands, but the ones I can get and love are the ‘Blue Hill Bay’ in wine sauce (the ‘Vita’ brand is OK, but not as good IMO). I also like the kind in sour cream, but the wine sauce is just so delicious!
Another favorite of mine are those pickled (marinated) mushrooms one can usually find at the olive bars of many nicer end grocery stores or markets. The flavor and texture combination… awesome!
(Some odd mentions I’ve yet to try and which sound very interesting are things like pickled grapes (muscadines perhaps too!?), avocado, and blueberries… I’ve yet to try lemons either)
