Sunday Dinner is a great American tradition that has all but disappeared. I want to bring it back. Join me in an exploration of roots food, culinary history, and kitchen folklore. Let’s remake Sunday Dinner from scratch.
My first-ever batch of homemade pickles in my grandmother's serving dish.
When I called to tell my mother that the pickles were finished and that they were delicious, she said, "I was waiting for this call!" Then she asked me if they were as good as Granny's pickles. I told her they tasted just like hers and that I was very pleased. She said, "Well, I didn't want to bring myself into it, but I'm glad you like them. I have a feeling they'll give mine a run for their money this year." Then we discussed the importance of using small cucumbers and the glory of the "Japanese Short" variety. I'm not sure which one of us was most excited. Thanks, mom!
