I love pickles, like REALLY love pickles! I’m a bit picky about my pickles though, they need to be crisp and great simple flavor. My favorite is a good garlic pickle… yes this Italian girl also can’t get enough garlic! The other night I remembered that I had an English cucumber that I hadn’t yet used and decided to give homemade Quick Garlic Pickles a whirl. Lets just say, I ate almost all of them myself… they are easy and delicious!
