We made it through the typical southern Ontario spring with heat waves and snow and more heat - and we're back into the growing season again!
This truly is my favourite time of year as tender plants are popping out of the ground, promising some lovely treats for us as the summer progresses. It's hard to believe that asparagus has already come and gone, and we're starting the very first of our 2021 Dill Pickles. For those that have been waiting all winter for more of these - you won't have to wait much longer, I promise. Keep an eye on the store for your chance to restock.
We are also on the heels of Garlic Scapes, Ontario Strawberry Jam, Roasted Tomato Chutney...so much to can, so little time....
Better get back it then.
Remember - as well as here at our online store, please visit these great vendors that are carrying some of our pickles and preserves!
(**The current Ontario phased openings during Covid-19 has changed the way many of us are able to do business, so please check the stores individual social media platforms and websites for hours and curbside pick up options.)

One last thing - it's been one crazy year, hasn't it? We are well on the way to moving back to an existence where we can spend time with friends, enjoy some wine on a patio, hug our families that we have not seen since last March. I know that around our place, we're going to do our best to remember the lessons we learned during this time - slowing down a bit, looking for the good, taking care of those who need it. Washing our hands more often. Doing our part for the community. Perhaps remembering how lucky we are in the ways that truly matter. We wish for all of you happiness, safety, and a little less stress weighing you down.

What we do.
Pickles Eh! makes small batch preserves with a focus on local and ethically sourced produce for people that care about where their food comes from. As well as pickles, we make jams, marmalades, chutneys, mustards and a variety of infused vinegars.
Who we are.
We are Andy Pogson and Dana Vranic. We, along with our team, make everything with our own hands. Why? Because it's better that way. It is our mission to help connect people back to the food that they eat by creating a stronger link between our customers, ourselves, local farms and businesses, and members of our community. We believe that buying and investing locally, as well as knowing who makes our food, strengthens us and builds prosperity for everyone.

My husband says he doesn't like strawberry jam, but your Strawberry Jam with Vanilla Bean is disappearing from our fridge at an alarming rate.

Their products are incredible. I'm obsessed with the Pickled Beets. My lips and fingers are permanently purple!

I don't like mustard, and I don't like horseradish, but your Horseradish Mustard is amazing!
