Hand Pickled. Hand Packed.
Really good pickles are a thing of beauty. And like beauty a good pickle can sometimes be hard to find. McClure’s pickles have made themselves into a force to be reckoned with and one bite will tell you why.
Yes, they’re that good. We make sure to have a jar at all times, with a back-up just in case. (Check out their Spicy Bloody Mary mix — but that’s a whole other story.)
Here’s how the McClure’s describe their enterprise on their website:
“Growing up, we never realized how influential pickles would be in our lives. In 2006, using our great-grandmother Lala’s recipe, we started McClure’s Pickles after years of making pickles in our tiny Michigan kitchen. We learned how to make the pickles from our grandfather and parents and now we continue the tradition with a bit more room. We make the pickles, relish, bloody mary mix and other McClure’s products just outside of Detroit, Michigan. In Brooklyn we produce small batches for research and development. We use as much local produce as possible when it is in season and when it’s not, we call up the farms and speak directly with the growers to know where our produce is coming from and how it is being grown making sure we are getting some of the best, freshest produce available. Every jar is hand packed, the cucumbers hand sliced in our own factory, not from a private labeler. We’re happy that after so many years, we can bring our family recipe to yours.”
These pickles are as honest as they are good. You have to try these.
The Brothers McClure produce these delicious pickles with local cucumbers in Brooklyn (with lots of good work being done in Michigan, too). Oh man, these pickles kick it real good!
