Wondering about wild grapes

Yum, Yum, Good!!!

OK, I found something that I really, really like the taste of.  You see, I like pickles, especially when added to a good sandwich.  Yep, they sure do make any sandwich taste better.  I remember back when I was a kid, my Grandma made home made pickles, some  where sweet dills.  Now, they had such a wonderful taste but it has been so long since I have had any of her pickles, I am not sure exactly what they did taste like.

The other day, we were grocery shopping and I spotted a jar of Jalapeno Bread-N-Butter pickles.  Oh dang are they good!!!  I ate some on a sandwich just a few minutes ago.
 
The above picture I found on line, but the ones we bought were Del Dixie.  Let me tell you, these are worth trying.  Hey, if you don't like them, send them to me (grin).

My Dad was a Heinz salesman and we were never out of ketchup, pickles, soup, etc.  Did you know that back then, Heinz also made peanut butter.  It was the kind that came with peanut oil on top and you had to stir and stir and stir until the whole jar was creamy.  Anybody but me remember that?  Now, you all have a great day, you hear?

  1. I'm making my forty mile trek to the nearest store and will look for these. Best Maid usually has a good price on pickles.

  2. I think I'd like those ... a lot... even though we limit our sodium intake, some things are just worth it! About the peanut butter... when you buy "homemade" or about any peanut butter except brands like Skippy or Jif, you still have to stir the oil back into it... and sometimes refrigerate it after opening.... it just doesn't have the chemicals to keep it fresh and from separating like the big name brands.

    1. Since I found out that peanuts carry lots of mycotoxins, I use almond butter instead. Almonds are tree nuts, peanuts mature under ground. I used to grow peanuts in my garden.

  3. I remember the peanut on top of the peanut butter, way back when.

    1. I didn't think that you were old enough. You and your wife look quite young to me.

  4. I don't remember Heinz making peanut butter but my mother would can pickles - most bread and butter pickles. Both my mother and my grandmothers were big on canning. Have a great weekend.

  5. My Hubby loves pickles, Dizzy, often having a pickle sandwich - no meat or cheese, just pickles. For this, he likes the flat sliced spicy pickles - I think made by Vlasic. Try 'em if you find 'em. I'm allergic to cucumbers, so stay away from pickles - never liked them much anyway, But peanut butter - there's a different story! I'll take that just about any way and in anything, with Peter Pan creamy the one of choice. Ummm-Ummm, good!

    1. I would have a pickle sandwich with your Hubby, for sure. But no peanut butter for me. Have you tried almond butter instead of peanut butter? You may want to switch.

  6. Hard to get anything with "kick" to it here in the Great White North. However, I'll keep my eyes open. That sounds like it would be great in a monster sandwich.

    1. Oh yes, they are great in sandwiches. They have just enough kick to them but the peppers are not overbearing.

  8. I like pickles but rarely buy them for some reason. I never knew Heinz made peanut butter but I do remember having to stir to make it creamy. Love peanut butter.

    1. I don't know when they quit making peanut butter, but it was quite a few years ago. But since I am 73, I have also been around for quite a few years.
