"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
It has been several years since I made these and can't remember if this recipe makes 1 or 2 quarts. However sometimes you have to make extra brine so each jar is filled to 1/2 inch below top.

These are my favorite pickle . Aunt Helen Willkom would usually have them when I came to visit. They are named after her neighbor Arleva ,who must have invented them.
