Last summer while visiting friends and house-sitting in Oregon, I took advantage of having access to someone else’s full kitchen to make some tasty dill pickles. I made both kosher dills with fresh dill and garlic cloves, and what I called, for lack of a better name, Spicy Dills, made with fresh dill, garlic cloves, whole peppercorns, mustard seeds, and coriander, and a bay leaf (but no red peppers so they weren’t hot and spicy, just spicy).

Today, I ate the last kosher dill from the last jar of pickles. I’m going to miss them.

If you want to make some pickles of your own this summer, try these recipes – they sound delicious: Spicy, Crunchy Dills from Pixelated Crumb and Fast Favorite Garlic Dills from Epicurious.

Maybe I’ll make some, too… that is, if I can find a kitchen 😀
