Cheryl of Cheryl’s Delight shares her recipe for Peppermint Pickles. They are creative and yummy. Cheryl provides clear instructions. Nice recipe. One note: After the vinegar, food coloring and alum step, rinse the cucumbers thoroughly to get rid of all of the alum.
You may not think peppermint and pickle would taste good together. I have to share a memory here. When we were kids we would sometimes get a big dill pickle from the corner store (yes they had corner stores).
If we bought a pickle, Bruno, the owner of the store, would give us a free peppermint stick. After biting off the top of the pickle, we’d push the peppermint stick down the middle of the pickle. Then we’d eat chunks of pickle and peppermint stick. It was sour-sweet and delicious!
So making regular peppermint pickles does make a tasty pickle. Click on the How to Make Peppermint Pickles link below to see Cheryl’s recipe.
