I finally was brave enough to try my pickles and salsa the other day. After opening the jar of pickles, I gingerly removed one sliver of cucumber and gently bit into it. I was met by a fizzing that surprised me. The flavor was mild, they probably could have gone another day before being refrigerated to stop the fermenting process. I took some to work and had two of my coworkers try them, the reviews were positive with agreement on the mild flavor.
The salsa I was a bit more hesitant to try but I finally did the other day. I had some on store-bought tortillas since I lacked having made my own (but is on my lsit of things to try). It was a mild-medium heat (which I’m sure would have been more potent had I not picked out the red chili pepper bits before eating). I’m not big on hot so that was ok with me. It over-all had a pleasant flavor, and an even more pleasant aroma, however next go-round I will use a bit less onion and more cilantro and tomatoes.
