You may ask yourself, what are these gherkins doing traveling around in a big pot? You may find yourself not in your beautiful house. You may find yourself in another part of the world. You may ask yourself, how did we get there?
These ginger gherkins with a kick of hot pepper are, yes, an homage to the great Ruth Bader Ginsburg, because these are the most badass fucking gherkins imaginable. They've been through smoke and fire and danger and chaos, and survived, like a gingery beacon of hope.
Yes, when we evacuated from our home during the September wildfires that decimated Oregon, we loaded up the gherkins. They're a tough taskmaster: ginger gherkins take many days to make, but we were determined to see them through. We may have christened them "Those Fucking Gherkins" somewhere along the way. We think RBG would be proud.
Local gherkins, sugar, fresh ginger, red pepper flakes, ginger liqueur, all in a 6 oz. jar.
