“These are pickled tomatoes and, well, pickles and are enjoyed by Russians with a shot of vodka, a slice of buttered dark rye bread (similar to pumpernickel) with caviar on top. I kid you not. They are really tasty and addictive. I used to get them at the Russian/European deli, but they are so easy, I just make them myself.”
