For persnickety pickle people

Okay, we interrupt the regular blog posting to present a message to Long Island residents in search of pickles - Heinz Hamburger Dill Chips, to be exact - because they are practically impossible to find on Long Island. Most stores carry a variety of other brands, and if they carry Heinz, it's usually only sweet relish.

Persnickety pickle palates recognize that the Heinz Hamburger Dill Chip has the right pickle punch - the right amount of crispiness, a nice vinegar tang that doesn't overwhelm, and nice ridges...it's the way a hamburger dill is supposed to be.

And where can you get Heinz Hamburger Dill Chips on Long Island? In Nassau County, you can find them at Uncle Giuseppe's Italian Market at the corner of Hempstead Turnpike and Prospect Avenue in East Meadow. I can't speak for their other locations in Port Washington or Smithtown, but in East Meadow, besides pickles, they have a great selection of Sterling Silver meats, Bell & Evans chickens, and some delicious in-store deli stuff including some crazy good fried Italian chicken cutlets and tomato-mozzarella salad.

So there you have it. Go to Uncle Giuseppe's in East Meadow and get your Heinz Hamburger Dill pickle fix.

Well, I'm warning you that if you have pickles at your house right now...you'd better eat them or hide them before Tuesday. Caris will not only eat all your pickles, she will drink the pickle juice too!

Um...you have no idea what a pickle hound I am. Caris is going to LOVE my pickle stash. Of course, I don't know what types of pickles she likes, or if she likes many different types like me...but I have bread and butter pickles, spicy okra pickles, hot sweet pickles, and of course, dill pickles. I have a pantry as backup. She won't eat them all! ;-)
