    I Need Crisp, Briny Pickles

    I Need Crisp, Briny Pickles

    10 years ago, Jenny had a half-sour pickle from Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, MI... and it was life-changing. But Jenny lives in North Carolina. She hasn't been back to Michigan, and attempts to recreate the signature half-sour crunch in her own kitchen have been unsuccessful. Chris enlists BA resident fermentation enthusiast Amiel Stanek (with a special appearance by Zingerman's cofounder Ari Weinzweig) to concoct a "recipe" that'll have Jenny enjoying crisp, barely-pickled half-sours all summer long.

My commute just got interesting

What a fantastic little podcast! Friendly and approachable vibes with an inclusive back and forth of ideas. Chris Morroco’s tone sets the stage for something you can grab ideas from and giggle along to. The off piste cocktails and burgers were brought to the table and kindly fed to the proverbial dog between their knees. Great recipe ideas to set the mind and taste buds racing!
