The first thing I would do after unwrapping a McDonald’s cheeseburger is overly pulled those 2 pickles out. Much as I climbed from filthy McDonald’s I still never understood that the pickle passion. Why would people choose, let alone love, eating something so sour?
As I developed I eventually started to understand the reason why. Crunchy, sour, salty. They have personality and you’re able to distinguish between the good and the poor. The supermarket in the homemade.
Not to mention they may be tremendously nutritious. The acidic tasting vinegar is really anti-acidic. You will enhance your pH balance and fight disease. Apple cider vinegar, and that we use in this recipe, is especially strong.
