Ah, pickles. I’m a big fan. After unfocused yet exhaustive research, I’ve decided that my favorite brand of jarred pickles is Kruegermann Frischgurken – Fresh Pack Pickles. Perhaps it my German heritage or my repeated ingestion of German foods since the womb, but I fancy a pickled vegetable of all sorts, be it cabbage, ginger, or cucumber. Kohl, Ingwer oder Gurken. And I’d be remiss if I did not mention Rotkohl and good ol’ Sauerkraut. If you live on the Peninsula, you can get the pickles at the Schaub’s in the Stanford Shopping Center, or online at the Bavaria Sausage Shop.
