This gift basket from Root Cellar Preserves features three of their most popular gourmet pickles. Sweet & Spicy mixes slices of classic cucumbers with chunks of cauliflower, banana peppers, pepperoncini, onions and red bell peppers in a sweet and hot brine. Apple Cinnamon Pickles, which are sweet cucumber slices with just a touch of apple and cinnamon flavor. And dills, always a favorite. Choose one of each or
Root Cellar Preserves is dedicated to bringing back the art of pickling and has established a fund from their profits to help preserve early American homesteads (where much of that pickling tradition took hold). Their products are delicious, and sure to please the pickle lovers in your family. Of course, if there are no pickle lovers in your life, I’d love some more. Hint, hint.
