Here's the one thing I have found as I was
Case in point: You like pickles? Same here! Make mine dill, please, and put 'em in a salad or on a burger or alongside some patootie salad with fried chicken. Good stuff!
Now, here is a web page that shows you how to make your own dill pickles. All you have to do is run to the store and buy some "pickling" cucumbers (as if there are "non-pickling" cucumbers) and then run down the spice aisle for sea salt and dill weed, down the glass aisle for vinegar and then back to Produce because you forgot you need fresh garlic.
Then you go home and find an old quart Mason jar, like the one that spaghetti sauce - or even pickles - came in. You wash it out nice and clean, and add the ingredients and WAIT FIVE DAYS for your pickles to finish marinating.
There are 7200 minutes in 5 days. How long does it take you to run to the Food Clown and buy a jar of Food Clown® Brand Kosher Pickles?
Moreover, by the time you purchase cukes, garlic, salt, dill weed and vinegar, and add in the value of your own time (just for argument's sake, let's figure on your hourly salary being that of the brain surgeon or corporate attorney you might have become) and those homemade pickles of yours will wind up costing you roughly $14.37 per spear.
I hope they're tasty!
