oh gosh you just hit my FAVOURITE topic... Dill pickles they dont exist in the UK i mean they try to call them dill pickles but they arent..

Yes in barrels you get Dill Pickles Generally kosher dills :) Claussen are my favourite.. That or strubs..

And a lot of people here know how much i crave them LOL

I try to get people to ship me pickles how sad am I.

Anyway back to the post... Yes Kosher Dills.. are the ones in barrels in Delis. you get them BIG and whole 1/4 speared etc.

very tasty but ive never been able to make them exact. I use a lot of sea salt or kosher salt :)

They aren't kosher dills. I know what those taste like. They aren't dills at all, on that matter. Gonna try to make up some half sours and sours to see which of those, if either, are the type.

It's been my experience that full sour pickles are different from dills. The deli counter always had two big jars-one for dills and the other for sours. They did not taste the same.

Claussens are the jar pickles I usually buy--Vlasic doesn't make it to the stores out here too often, for some reason. There's not a jar pickle on the market that tastes like the ones I'm talking about.

Heck, if there were...I wouldn't be wanting to make some :P
