What type of pickle with your burger?
What type of pickle do you like on your burger? I do not like the regular choice, which seems to be sweet dill chips.
I like to buy the refrigerated Kosher dill whole pickles, and then slice them into chips myself. To me this makes for a livelier, crunchier, fresher effect than the typical pre-cut dill chips.
I prefer Claussen since they seem to have more snap, maybe because they are Half Sours, which retains more of the natural cucumber taste and crispiness. I suppose Vlasic is just fine.
Understood...you may not always WANT a pickle on your burger. But the question is...when you DO, what is your preferred type?
And do you prefer a pickle ON the burger or as a side?
Some Choices (I realize there is overlap)
--Kosher Dill (more garlic)
--Sweet Pickle (made with more sugar, spices and vinegar)
--Half-Sours (crunchiest, no vinegar, refrigerated, see above)
--Sours (less crispy than Half-Sours, but more sour punch)
--Dill chips ("bread 'n butter chips") - sweet, tangy
--Full pickles you cut into "chips" yourself
--Gherkins (disgusting little mutants)
