Quick Pickles

Quick Pickles by Rhubarb and Honey

You know what I like with my barbeque? Pickles. Really tart pickles. I think the tartness of pickles adds a delicious contrast to both the salty, smoky taste of most barbequed meats and the sweetness of many barbeque sauces so a jar of pickles — preferably homemade — will always be found gracing the table [...]
