Years ago, in Old Europe and in this country, sugar was very scarce. For this reason, Bread & Butter pickles were a delicacy and saved for very special occasions. They were considered a great treat! But have you ever noticed that other Bread & Butter pickles have a very yellow tinted juice? That’s because sugar turns a cucumber a bluish gray color (known as sugar shock), so other companies add yellow coloring, or turmeric and polysorbate to their pickles – yellow and blue makes green! Great Grandma Skufca did not have additives – and she did not need them! She knew that adding a grape leaf to the jar kept the natural green color of the pickles, even with the added sugar – no need to dye them green again! It keeps them crisp and crunchy too! That’s why you will find our Bread & Butters to be clear, crisp and delicious, unlike any other Bread & Butter pickle on the market!
Back in the day, Great Grandma Skufca took an exotic trip to Indiawhere she discovered the beautiful taste of chai tea and decided to blend that taste into her amazing pickle recipe.
Okay, okay, that’s not exactly how it went down. Grandma never made it to India. Chai is, however, a delicious combination of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and other spices that was traditionally brewed and used
to treat colds, flu, digestive issues and other health problems. But what intrigued us is that it is known as “grandmother’s chai”, as the grandmother was the traditional caretaker of the family in India and would brew these spices for her family. Then guess what? The recipes would be handed down through the generations for hundreds of years. Sound familiar? So we at Tru thought it would be an interesting idea to pay homage to the Indian grandma by using chai spices in an offshoot of Great Grandma Skufca’s Bread & Butter pickles. The result is our out-of-this-world delicious Chai Pickle – still using the Old World natural process that Tru Pickles has become known for, these pickles use only natural ingredients, no preservatives or additives, are always crisp and tasty. Grandmas all over the world sure do know best!
