  1. Asian Development Bank has its own commissary that brings in goods from US and Australia, including beef. The jar of pickles is the standard size you would normally get in the US. If you forward me an address, will see how much it costs to forward via LBC.

    1. It’s okay Don. Thanks anyway. That would be a bit much for pickles for my budget. If I was picking them up in person, then maybe I would get some.

  2. If you really need dill pickles, they cost $2.5o a jar for sliced hamburger pickles in my commissary. I can ship via LBC (assuming they deliver to Samar) for Php 150 a kg. Let me know,.

    1. Well Don we do have LBC here, but those could end up being some expensive pickles. How big of a jar are we talking about? This is the first I’ve heard about you having a commissary.
      I see you are in the process of updating your website, or at least this is the first time I’ve seen it look that way. I think it looks good, but everything is not working yet.

  3. It would help to have ‘dill seed’ and pickling or canning salt to prepare the “brine” mixture. The brine should be brought to a boil until the salt is dissolved, then poured into the jar over the cukes. Then the jar should be given a “hot water bath” in boiling water for 15 minutes. The trick is in the brine and we use a 2 to 1 water to vinegar ratio. It also helps to have vinegar that is <5% acidity. Keep working on it and you will never have to go to Tacloban again for pickles. 🙂

    1. Thanks Randy I’ll pass that on to Lita, but I’m not sure we have dill seed or pickling/canning salt here. We’ll look for what we’ve got. Also we don’t get our pickles in Tacloban because as far as I know, they don’t have them either. I see you stuck a different e-mail in on me.

      1. I had to generate a new email address to coincide with my website. I am deleting many of my old email addresses (I have several) that were created for different objectives. I Don’t know if i want to be a slave to the website and blogging, but I generated one anyway. :/

        1. I myself have a few e-mail address. I HAD at one time 16 Yahoo addresses. I finally got that down to 2 and I’ll probably stick with those 2. I have 1 e-mail that I never use, not one incoming or outgoing message. I’ve really only got 4 that I use on a continuing basis. The 2 in Yahoo, one in Google and of course johnwjr7@texaninthephilippines.com for the blog.
