Learn About The Living Room’s Homemade Pickles!
When you’re looking for a good burger or sandwich, you might not be paying much attention what else is on your plate. You might not think much about pickles at all, or only like them sweet or dill. What you can agree on is that pickles are best fresh and homemade. The Living Room has a “scratch” kitchen, meaning we make all of our food from scratch. Chef Frank Schattauer, who hails from Germany, makes all of our pickles from scratch, right in The Living Room’s kitchen.
How The Living Room Makes Pickles
Frank starts with a fresh pickling cucumber. He quarters each cucumber lengthwise and stacks them in containers. Once the cucumbers are stacked, he pours a mixture of boiled white vinegar, pickling spices and herbs for seasoning. Sugar, salt, and water are added to the mix to weigh the cucumbers down. The mixture cools and the containers are placed in the refrigerator. Over the next several hours, the cucumbers will pickle and develop more flavor due to the brine. Once the pickles are ready, they are served with each sandwich ordered at The Living Room.
