One starry night after a long sunny day of Faire, we and a bunch of friends were sitting around enjoying a well deserved supper and stories from the day.
All of a sudden John spoke up, “You gotta try this!” He had made himself a steaming cup if Black Licorice Tea and then decided he needed a Dill Pickle. The combination was well…..interesting.
Can you guess what Licorice Tea does to the flavor of a Dill Pickle?
IT MAKES THE PICKLE SWEET!!!
This may not be a April Fool’s trick, but it sure Fooled our taste buds.
(P.S. If you want to try this at home you don’t actually have to swallow the tea or eat the pickle. You can just swish the juice so that it covers the tongue. Try it! It’s fun!)
