This week's batch is made from a variety of cucumbers called "Salt and Pepper." They are pale yellow in color. Rent the film "Crossing Delancey" and pop open a jar of this seasonal treat. Pickling cucumbers are brined with spices and herbs, and cultured until they capture the classic taste of New York's Lower East Side. In the range between sour and half-sour, these herby pickles are a perfect probiotic sidekick to a burger, sandwich or any meal--including a kid's lunchbox! Note: our pickling cucumbers come from local family farms, and vary in size throughout the season. We make sure each jar has the correct amount of pickles, regardless of size. Depending on size, we generally pickle them cut in half.
Ingredients: cucumbers, ginger, garlic, yellow and brown mustard seeds, fresh dill, caraway seeds, juniper berries, black peppercorns, grape leaves, bay leaves, reverse-osmosis filtered water, Celtic sea salt
