When I was 14 I did a lot of babysitting. One of the perks of babysitting is getting to raid other people’s fridges.
The first time I ever came across “Bread and Butter pickles” was while I was babysitting. With a name like that, I figured the idea was, you butter some bread and then put the pickles inside to make a sandwich.
I really like my bread and butter pickle sandwiches. (I still don’t know why they are called Bread and Butter pickles.)
If you think that’s weird, how about this: Mark, who hails from England, likes crisp (potato chip) sandwiches. This involves spreading your bread with mayonnaise and using potato chips for filling. Ugh. Ok, if I’m honest, it tastes pretty good, but the idea is seriously ugh. The funny thing is, Mark thinks peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a) strange b) gross.
Now, how about you? Any slightly strange delicacies you’d like to share?
