tsukemono guilt

tatamagouche | Dec 8, 2008 11:16 AM

At a Japanese place the other day I ordered tsukemono and got what I took to be housemade pickles (see photo). They constituted more like a dressed salad of nearly raw veggies than the pickles I'm used to—you know, those fluorescent, super-pungent doodads.

I'm thinking the ones I *like* are therefore actually prepackaged & I should hang my head for preferring them (while secretly running out to the nearest Asian market to buy my own stash), but can anyone tell me for sure? Thanks!
