PICKLE LICKER


I've been called a lot of things in my career but never "pickle licker". . . That is, until I visited the Lower East Side Pickle Fest a few weeks ago.  The Lower East Side traditionally encompasses the "pickle" part of town.  Pickle vendors historically congregated their shoppes around this small Manhattan neighborhood, for reasons I couldn't tell ya.  In praise of party diversity, participating pickle purveyors provided everything from pickled pizza, pickle flavored peanut brittle (without the peanuts), and yes, pickle cupcakes-- naturally peppered with a petite candied pickle.  Figure out that chemistry!

  6. FYI just thought you'd like to know that it's the "pickle part of town" because pickles were one of the foods that Jewish immigrants brought with them from Eastern Europe around the turn of the last century, and the Lower East Side was the largest area of settlement in the world at that time for Jewish emigration.
