Delicious out-of-the-ordinary pickles! My husband loves pickled vegetables so when I spotted this today I knew I had to pick up turnips at the store! I had everything else and whipped up a jar in no time tested in 30 minutes and he's in love! I think they're great too and would love to try them on a cheese plate during the holidays. For now they are in the fridge for snacking! Pros: Fast and easy to make with only a few ingredients lasts weeks in the fridge pretty and unique gift Cons: None! These are great! Read More
