More about Dickson's Fine Brines:
With Dickson’s Fine Brines, we hope to reinvent the New York Pickle Stall of old for the 21st century.
Today, few producers make pickles using traditional methods. The traditional retail pickle establishments, once thriving businesses in New York where you were able to pick your pickles out of a barrel, no longer exist.
In addition to the rich New York-based history of pickles, there are traditions of fermentation in cultures across the world. Fermentation is one of the oldest methods of preservation and a way to enhance the nutritional value of foods; these ancient methods deliver unique, ever changing (often called “living” foods that continue to evolve over time), seasonal foods that stand out among today’s commoditized food products.
Dickson’s Fine Brines hopes to tap into these cultural memories from our pasts and give them new life for a modern era--just like we’ve done by bringing back the old fashioned butcher shop.
