kool aid pickle

I'm totally making these (via the New York Times).

To make a Kool-Aid pickle, remove about half the brine from the pickle jar, dump in some sugar and refill it with your favorite flavour of Kool-Aid. Wait a week and then eat up. Apparently, you should cut the pickles into quarter for maximum soakage or prick each pickle with a fork. Hmmm, cherry or strawberry?

The article was wonderful and makes my urge to visit the South even greater. I loved the idea of "home stores" where local kids just head to someone's home to buy chips, snacks and of course, kool-aid pickles. Awesome.

There are a couple of "home stores" in my neighbourhood. Yup, in T.O. Kind of a strange notion. Can't wrap my head around the idea of walking into someone's home unannounced to get a chocolate bar. I think it's my Victorian, or rather my Greek upbringing :D

I love bread and butter pickles - the sweet ones, but I'm not sure fruity flavoured pickles is my shtick. I'm willing to try everything once though!

geez. Not another thing to put on my "to do" list. It's getting long. I still have to get the vodka for the vodka, coffee bean and orange booze thing.

I saw this in the Times and freaked! I love love love dill pickles, but these are scaring me a little.
