In a Pickle

wicklespickles.jpgGourmet magazine contributing editor John T. Edge (who is also director of the Southern Foodways Alliance) blogged this week in Gourmet's "ChopTalk" about Alabama's own Wickles Pickles. "Wickles, made by the Sims family in Dadeville, Alabama, are, despite their coined-by-a-lapsed-sorority-girl moniker, arrestingly great. A little sweet. A little hot. With a whiff of cider vinegar. And top notes of dill and garlic."

Wickles were recently voted the Best Hot Pickles by Rachael Ray's magazine and they're leading the voting for best overall pickle at Rachaelraymag.com. Back in 2003, Southern Living wrote about the 78-year-old secret family recipe, "they are packed in a sugary cider vinegar with spicy peppers and garlic for just the right balance - a little heat with a little sweet."

I've never actually had Wickles myself, but they sound great. Does anyone know who might carry them in Birmingham? Otherwise, I'm going to have to order some from their web site.

Based on the Fresh Market website, they carry the pickles and the relish. I didn't get a hit on the Whole Foods site.

Bought some at Publix last night after reading about them high. Delish!!!! They have relishes and a hot dog topping as well.

You can also buy them at Bruno's. They are some of the best pickles I have ever eaten.
