These extra spicy pickles aren’t for the faint of heart! They feature three types of heat: Thai chile, habanero, and crushed red pepper flakes. The brine has a tangy apple cider base with garlic, dill and black peppercorns which gives them a refreshing crunch. Costa Mesa-based Pernicious Pickling Co. grew out of a love for pickles and the happy, ocean-bridging marriage of deep South flavors and European spice blends. No gherkin’ around – they’re a pretty big dill.
TIP OF THE TONGUE
Serve these hotties alongside cured meats, or dip into batter for fried pickle chips. Swoon!
