One Sunday afternoon, while waiting for Liz to finish her shift at a restaurant near Civic Center, Paul  decided to kill some time at the nearby farmer’s market. Drawn to the tiny cucumbers, he decided to pick up a couple of bags and try his hand at making pickles...

Together, for months afterward, the couple tried many different recipes and techniques, striving for the perfect pickle. And the dedication paid off, resulting in a briny, spicy, crunchy, delicious pickle!

Liz and Paul immediately began experimenting with different vegetables and brines, not only creating pickled products, but turning those into an array of delectable sauces and relishes.
