Pickles! doodily doo ding dong doodily doodily doo

pickles.jpg Last week or so ago, Wesa posted about the front page news story about how cucumbers were going to be outsourced to India [mb, pi].

In case not everyone got to the comments on that particular post (you should if you’re interested in making your own pickles), I wanted to second Patricia’s comment about the absolute wonderfulosity of Woodring’s Parker Pickles.

A couple of summers ago, I discovered said pickles at the West Seattle farmer’s market and was so effusive to the gal at the booth that she told me that the owner’s son, Parker, had suggested they start carrying these items and thus the name. I don’t know if she was telling the truth, but I’ve set up a shrine (that consists of many many empty pickle jars) to Mr. Parker anyhow.

Perhaps they do not inspire as much um, gasping, as does the dessert at Madame K’s [mb], but I do love the fresh crispy snap and delicate hint of pepper of the spicy version. So much so that there is a jar in my fridge at all times. For the wimps those that don’t like spicy pickles (they’re not THAT spicy) they have regular dills for sale as well.

One can find Woodring’s booths at the West Seattle farmer’s market on Sundays, at the U-District farmer’s market on Saturdays, and everyday of the week at Pike Place Market (but strangely no pickles online). Jars are $7 and HIGHLY recommended.

PS In an only very slightly related topic, Sound on the Sound just reported that Dethklok will be making a stop in Seattle in June [sos]. Doodily doo indeed!

    I am going to make my own pickles this year due to the comments in that last post. I’ll definitely have to buy a jar of those pickles too so that I can compare.

    Dethklok references in a food article are BRUTAL.

    By the way… Woodring will recycle the jars. Just bring them back to the booth.

    I am cracking up at this title and eliciting strange stares from my co-workers. Thanks CeRo!
