I love mustard pickles, however, they are difficult to find. The best ones were from a Village in Massachusetts, but they no longer stock them. It has become a quest for me as I madly search every gift shop and flea market I visit.
I was at a flea market in Florida which will remain nameless and they carried them. The charming lady brought me over to the barrel and gave me a taste. They were awful, perhaps the worst I have ever tasted, but what do you say? I told her they were different, which they were, and bought a bag of sweet gherkins.
When I ask people who sell pickles they always give me a look. They have never experienced the joy of these delights and I can tell they will not contemplate creating them for me as they consider it a one sale item. However, I think mustard pickles have a market and I am thinking maybe we could have a mustard pickle festival. They have festivals for pies and it would certainly be less caloric.
