Well, show us one of those you are proud of! You don't have to have many examples to have a collection. Keep in mind that "pickles" includes capers, olives, and other condiments preserved in vinegar or brine. More broadly applied, the term might include such things as truffles, cherries in brandy, and who knows what else.I love them! We dig a lot of broken ones here in Texas but never have dug a whole one. I have a few around the house I have accumulated over the years but they are pretty pricy to make a collection of!
