Today is National Pickle Day!

November 14, 2016 is

National Pickle Day

It’s National Pickle Day! Pickles have been a popular food for thousands of years. In 2030 B.C., cucumbers were imported from India to the Tigris Valley. There, they were first preserved and eaten as pickles.

In ancient Egypt, people consumed pickles for their nutritional value and because they were thought to enhance beauty. Cleopatra attributed her good looks to her full diet of pickles. Centuries later, Napoleon believed that pickles offered health benefits for his armies, so he offered a huge cash prize to anyone who was able to preserve them safely.

Today we honor the culinary history of pickles. This versatile vegetable can be enjoyed as a condiment, snack, or side dish. Stock up on your favorite kind of pickles and celebrate National Pickle Day!

Pickles Are Great For Boosting Your Energy

pickles aren’t just great for after a workout

The favorite snack of The Little Rascals isn’t just worth singing about, they’re also great for boosting your energy after a workout! Pickles are high in electrolytes that will boost your glycogen levels back up, due to the vinegar in the pickle juice.

In fact, pickles aren’t just great for after a workout, but during one as well! Pickles have been shown to help alleviate cramps in athletes. A 2013 study found that subjects who drank pickle juice experienced cramps for 49 seconds less than those who drank water.

As long as you aren’t putting the pickles on a bacon cheeseburger, they should be great for getting your energy levels back to par!

What Is Our Best Selling Pickle?

Our Half Sour Pickles are our best sellers

Best Selling Pickles

Available for shipping in our online store now

Order some today!

“Fresh” is the word with our Half Sour Pickles! These are lightly brined to give you the ultimate fresh cucumber bite with a clean delicious flavor.

aka…NEW Pickles

These are the greenest pickles that we have. They are listed as ½ sour because they won’t be as green as our NEW pickles are at a Farmers Market, once they are shipped. They will turn ½ sour after only 1 or 2 days. When you receive them you may see a cloudy brine, this is perfectly normal. They are in the process of “turning”. Mild and super-refreshing!

Many people love the crunchy texture and the taste of the lighter brine.
Half Sour Pickles are second in popularity to only our Dill Pickles.

The good news about pickles is they are low in saturated fats and cholesterol and high in fiber. Vitamin A and Iron are also abundant in pickles.
