Unbelievably several Safeway's are now carrying BaTempte's "Garlic Dill" pickles. These are authentic full sour Brooklyn pickles in league with Guss' and Mrs. Whyte's of Montreal. I just bought six jars (yes!) at the Reston Safeway and left four on the shelf. I also saw them at the McLean Safeway several days ago. In both stores a small sign notes that they are a "new item." I am guessing that they are probably being tested at a number of stores and may not be found in everyone.
These are incredible pickles and an extreme rarity in the D. C. area. Anyone who loves a full sour pickle should seriously try to buy them. The more of us that do the greater the likelihood they will continue to carry them.
I don't know if many on this board know but for about three or four months two years ago Fresh Fields carried Guss' full sours but stopped FOR LACK OF DEMAND.
This can't happen again!
