The night in a Mexican jail. The call from the IRS. Waking up and not being able to find your pants.
You’ve gotten yourself into some pickles.
So don’t be a stranger to Pick-a-Peck Pickles. Created by the Brubaker family (a mom, dad, and four brothers), the zesty delicacies are hand packed with natural, often locally sourced ingredients in a Yuba City cannery kitchen.
If you like spice, stock your cupboards with Bean Me Up, Scotty (crunchy, hot pickled green beans infused with four types of peppers). Not-too-sweet Just Beet It pickled salad beets with dashes of cinnamon and cloves are the ultimate tangy treat.
The pickles are delicious on sandwiches or when you want a little teatime snack.
Without getting into a jam.
