My Grandmother’s house always had a distinct smell. No, it wasn’t that classic “grandma smell– it was her pickles. Your Grandmother’s pickles. The best pickles on the planet!
They were spicy, crunchy, and packed with flavour unlike any pickles sold in the grocery store. Grammy’s life was a lot like her pickles– zesty and full of spice. She was also a classic grandma and loved to eat and feed her loved ones.
Sometimes she served a leg of lamb. Sometimes she served Mocha Cakes–but she always served some of her homemade pickles. These pickles from Chridomar Gardens from The Carleton Place Farmer’s Market are Grandma’s pickles. In fact, in a blind taste test, I probably wouldn’t know the difference between hers and another version.
This is their eighth year selling at local farmer’s markets. They specialize in jams/jellies and pickles of all kinds. They even have mustards, relishes and salsas. They use home grown veggies or buy locally. There are no insecticides or chemicals in these babies! Stop by their booth at the Carleton Place Farmer’s Market– as they say.. they be jammin!
