cheese and pickle, half sours

The cheese and pickle sandwich is a summer classic. This particular sandwich was created with half-sours that fermented on a bookshelf, homemade mustard I whipped, and some cheddar. The astute reader will also observe some granary bread from Bread Euphoria, and the really astute reader will observe some Hellman's--when you bring out the Hellman's, by the way, you bring out the best.

Good work, reader. You won. You observed everything. Now observe this:

Pictured above are four pickle spears, fermented and fresh. The fresh dills are on the right, and the half-sours are on the left. It reminds me of that song by Johnny Cash, The One On the Right Is On the Left, which goes a little something like this:

Well, the one on the right was on the left
And the one in the middle was on the right
And the one on the left was in the middle
And the guy in the rear was a Methodist

Looks awesome. My brand of the pickle sandwich has been, of late: wheat baguette; homemade dill pickle; Havarti; mustard.
