“This started out as a recipe from Miriam B. Loo (Current, Inc). I added more spice and garlic. I like garlic. I've made these pickles for years. This recipe has gone to innumerable pot-lucks. I try to keep a fresh batch in the fridge (when I open one jar, I make another) because someone in the house gets a midnight craving or we get invited to dinner (terrific hostess gift) or someone at work organizes a picnic or pot-luck.”
