...is one tiny-ass pickle.
She Who Must Be obeyed loves these little guys. Sweet gherkins - another kind of miniature pickle - are a favorite of hers, but this is no sweet gherkin. It is a cornichon, a Frenchified dwarf pickle with a subtle flavor.
Any time I bring home a pint of cornichons from the local Pickle Shoppe, SWMBO can be relied upon to demolish them in short order. And why not? They’re low in calories but packed with vinegary flavor.
Best of all, the cornichon is a perfect garnish for the Pickletini, being, as it is, a Teeny Pickle. Have one today!
