pickle. >>>

Hmmm. Sounds like it might be a Depression (Desperation?) Era dish.

<<< YUMMMM...but I can't have it anymore, sigh. >>>

Huh? Why not? Isn't it just vinegar and spices? Or does it have a lot  
of sugar added?

<<< And my mother used to make spiced peaches that were to die for. >>>

Brandied Peaches? I think I may remember these from my grandmother.

(only about a teaspoon or two of brandy left in the house. I used up  
the rest of what little I had in a bundt cake last night. Ended up  
stretching it a bit with spiced rum)
