    s'kat's Note:

    An addictive new (to me) substance that I can't seem to stop eating. Fantastic on tacos/tortillas, hamburgers/dogs, as a relish to smoked or barbecued meats, on salads, in salsas, and just plain good straight from the jar. From epicurious/Bon Appetit.

      OMG! Amazing flavor, S'kat! This was so easy to make too! I ended up having to make the pickling spice from scratch, and used Moxie's Pickling Spice. I served with Mean Chef's Pulled Pork #26257 and we were in heaven! I am thinking of all the wonderful things I can do with this new fabulous thing! Thank you!!!

      So easy to make and turned out great!! I had some on a BBQ chicken sandwhich then a few days later I had some on top of a slaw dog. I can't wait to find more uses for these! I did cut the recipe in half and made 2 quart sized jars. I gave one to my neighbor and can't wait to hear what she has to say about them! Made for THINK PINK 2010!

      Fantastic, and fun! Allspice and cloves together was a bit much for us, so cloves were eliminated after the first try (Pickling spice #57233). I used an even mix of white and cidar vinegar's to replace the water, and used 3/4 cup brown sugar instead of the 1c. this gives me enough acidity to store safely without refrigerating, and reduces the pure sweetness ever so slightly.
