Remember that movie in the 80s when Big Bird went to Japan? What a ridiculous idea! Anyway, we made pickles that he may or may not have eaten while he was there- Chili, garlic, teriyaki, shallots, sesame, and ginger. The flavors stand out kind of like...a giant yellow bird leasurly walking down the streets of Tokyo. Seriously, it was a real thing. Google it!
