Oma’s mustard pickles. This recipe was handed down to me from Kev’s Oma of Austrian heritage. It’s wonderful to be able to keep this old traditional recipe alive. Super simple, with minimal ingredients, this recipe can be made by anyone. Great accompaniment to have on your pick dinner/lunch. Very versatile, lends itself to most proteins. Perfect addition to keep stored up in the pantry.
