Anyone who grew up in the PNW would know these pickles. They were made in Portland Oregon. Pickle making was big business in the Jewish community. These were the only pickles my family would buy. When my parents were kids they were fished out of the wooden pickle barrel at the store.

These are a fermented pickle and contain no vinegar. The company sold to another Portlenad based pickle company Stienfelds. The recipe remained the same until Stienfelds was sold. The pickles can still be bought but the recipe is not the same.

I recently found this recipe online. Everyone that has tried it says it is the closest thing to the original.

I’ll find out in 5 weeks.

On day 6 screw lid tight and leave on the counter for 6 weeks or until you open them. Once you open to eat they go into the fridge. You store them on the shelf unrifrigderated until you start eating them.

Waiting! These will be ready December 6th... Until then they are sitting on top of the kitchen cabinets, the warmest place in our house.

The grand parents of my first wife made their pickles this way. Absolutely wonderful pickles!
They were Lifelong Seventh Day Adventists.
No radish or red pepper, as I recall. But the Garlic and Grape leaves were base ingredients.

Now that's the 3rd time today I've come across reference to grape leaves. Where the heck does one get grape leaves ?

Great looking recipe by the way. I'm a bit new to fermented pickles, so that whites stuff looks a bit suspicious to me. I will have a tough row to hoe trying to convince the she-beast they are safe to eat.

Where I live, in hobby farm country, every other neighbor has grape vines. I didn't plant one since neighbor had one growing on our common fence. Couple weeks ago, neighbor cut out all his vines! I had bag of cukes ready to make into Kosher Dills. Sent an emergency text to a co-worker that evening, next day at work he had a grocery bag full for me. Ask around, you'll find some.

We've got a couple grape vines growing in our backyard as well as rasberries. Doesn't everyone? :)

Just made another batch of these. Following Jetmans advice it dawned on me that I can use the grape leafs from our grape vine! So I did!

Can alum be used instead of grape leaves?
