Ugh, they lost me at using cabbage for anything. And I'm more German than a lot of German's are.

CSB:  I was at a bar with a buddy getting hammered ome day when a guy walks up to the bar and orders a shot of "Whiskey with a pickle-back".  My buddy and I looked at each other in bewilderment because we'd never heard of such a thing.  The bar tender pours him a shot of whiskey and a separate shot of pickle brine.  The guy proceeds to shoot one after the other (Whiskey first) and walks right out of the bar.

Intrigued, my buddy and I both order the same thing and down the shots.  It was....REALLY good.  We couldn't believe it.  As a matter of fact, every time we go out drinking we order one of those.  Just for fun, we always ask the bartender how fresh their pickle juice is.

/After 40, this is the sort of thing that passes for "fun" for guys that day-drink at a bar

A friend from a long, long time ago grew up in South Dakota and brought his tradition of shooting 'Prairie Fire' shots with him. Except he mixed it up a bit and had a second shot glass with pickle juice and tabasco, instead of mixing the hot sauce right in with the tequila. The combo of the brine and sting of hot sauce took the burn right out of the tequila shot before you could even taste it and cringe.

I miss my 20's, sometimes.

The irony of reading "Techniques like this never seem to get written down." on a site that not only recycles already-existing content, but, y'know, writes stuff down, is amusing as hell.

And I never, ever want to see an article that uses the phrase, "big dill energy," again.

We don't have a lot of pickle brine in our house because we don't eat that many pickles. But we don't have a lot of sex, either.

One more food article that makes me so glad to be from New Orleans and not have to survive on barely, edible cuisine.

/Make some gumbo biatches.

I'm Louisiana adjacent, and I must say that I make a pretty mean gumbo.

Also (forgot to add), speaking of pickles, a north LA native and in-law introduced the idea of serving potato salad with gumbo instead of rice. It's the traditional style potato salad that is mayo/mustard based and full of tart pickles. You just put the potato salad in the bowl instead of the rice and put the gumbo over it. I have to say that I liked it very much.

Other than them pointing to Italy and Spain briefly, this article is very heavily skewed toward Eastern Europe, especially focusing on Polish and Ashkenazi Jewish cuisine. And that's fine, but most of the soup I eat is not that, and I don't think the article does a very good job convincing me to try any of it. I generally don't want tangy soup unless it's hot and sour, and even that's something I don't eat much of. Most of these recipes are not things I would want to eat, not least because they're far removed from my family's own culinary traditions.

Pickles also apparently go well with vodka. I haven't tried it myself, but I found out from a certain Russian defector on late-night television:

I've had several women leave me. This is a rather unusual thing for a man to say. I've kicked a few out for sucking my pickle juice dry.

I grew up on a family recipe for a very strong 10 day pickle...  The pickle juice was saved and used to make the best deviled eggs; ruined me for anyone else's.
