I got this recipe out of today's newspaper. It looked interesting! In the article, it said they have a sweet/sour taste. I'm going to prepare them tonight!!!

I'm sorry. I love pickles, so does my youngest DS. It tasted like cough syrup, with a really bad after taste. Yes, I let this sit several days in the fridge prior to sampling. This was one of those rare recipes at Zaar that I cannot tweak and cannot make again.
