Quick Pickles & A Mushroom Sandwich

Pickles are probably one of my least favorite condiments. I'm no kosher fan. And especially not a fan of those giant dill pickles they sell at Disneyland that somehow attract people when it's hot out... Never mind a soggy pickle that comes on the side of your sandwich either.

But sweet pickles however - the kind that are still crunchy and buttery and go on your banh mi - now those are my kind of pickle. I'm sure most cookbooks will tell you to obsessively prepare your jar by boiling it clean for pickling and measuring out your vinegar and sugar to the tee. But the pickles I grew up with - the ones my mom and grandma made - are simple, crunchy, and ready instantly. All you need is cucumber, vinegar, sugar, and sesame seeds.
