Old Jul 25th, 2011, 03:36 PM        The pickle experiment.
All this talk about red pickles got me thinking. Also it got me googling "red pickle". Some of the results didn't look photoshopped, and that's how I learned that there are really red pickles and they're really popular in the South right now.

I guess the pickles are re-pickled in Kool Aid, so you could make about any color you wanted, but the red ones are the popular ones. I sorted through a few recipes and decided to go for the easiest recipe that's supposed to yield the most intense flavor. You know, because I'm not a pansy.

And you're coming with me.

STEP 1: Prep.



One jar of pickles, one packet of cherry kool-aid, one mixing container. Check.

STEP 2: Pour pickle juice from jar into measuring container.



STEP 3: Dump kool-aid packet into pickle juice; mix.



You know, I thought the smell would be horrible, but it was not at all objectionable. The cherry smell kind of blended in.

STEP 4: Dump cherry pickle juice back into jar.



I removed a couple of pickles to make sure they all soaked evenly. The pickles I saw online were a really vivid red, and I want that. There's so much food coloring in Kool Aid that it shouldn't take long.

STEP 5: Reseal and put in the back of your fridge for 2 weeks.



Done. With a big note advising any scavengers to leave them the hell alone.

Now we wait.

So... what flavour are we expecting? Cherry and brine? Or is it purely just a colour change?

I'd give you a red pickle due to the experiment, but that'd be mean for such quality, so you'll have to settle for the green variety.

PS - Your counter is immaculate. I'm guessing you live in a clean room and the intel dudes with the microchips are right next to you working on hardware while you work on pickles in your clean suit.

Something like that. This was my mom's kitchen, actually. Mine is usually about the same. I'm a neat freak who lives with slobs, so it's hard for me to keep up.

The sugar will promote bacteria growth which will make you sick. You shouldnt attempt this with kool aid.

It's not mixed kool-aid with sugar. It's the powder only, which is more or less ascorbic acid and food coloring, combined with the brine that was already in the pickles.

I rejected pickle recipes with sugared kool-aid for this reason.

It shouldn't be more or less harmful than any other two-week-old jar of pickles in the back of the fridge.

This is great. If it works, you should totally do a pickle of each color and then make a rainbow pickle display. Can't wait to see how the red pickle turns out.

Are there places where people actually eat pickles, then?

Dammit Kitsa, my plan was to come along on this wild ride with you... But instead of cherry I was going to choose my favourite flavour (lemon lime aka green). But I wussed out

Go for it, but I doubt you'll see too much of an exciting color change with the lime. I've got berry blue somewhere, but I ran out of jars of pickles.
