    I Need Crisp, Briny Pickles

    10 years ago, Jenny had a half-sour pickle from Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor, MI... and it was life-changing. But Jenny lives in North Carolina. She hasn't been back to Michigan, and attempts to recreate the signature half-sour crunch in her own kitchen have been unsuccessful. Chris enlists BA resident fermentation enthusiast Amiel Stanek (with a special appearance by Zingerman's cofounder Ari Weinzweig) to concoct a "recipe" that'll have Jenny enjoying crisp, barely-pickled half-sours all summer long.
