Blow $5 on finding out what pickled date fronds from Guatemala taste like, that is.
I like pickled just-about-anything (including pigs feet), so couldn't resist this jar of date fronds found in a Hispanic-oriented supermarket in Lake Havasu last weekend. And what did we think? Don't put it on your bucket list. The flavor was dull--not much brine in the brine, that is--and the texture was just plain odd. Not bad, but not at all good either. Neither soft nor particularly crunchy either, just some sawdusty place in between. Wonder what they use them for, anyone know?
