September 12, 2011


End of the summer madness continues here as the Pickle Prince of Pomona puts up 60 pounds of Kirby as pickles.  First crisis was finding that amount – or any amount for that matter. Summer weather with heat and floods have been hard on our local farmers.  However bit by bit were able to put together his requested quantity.  Then we ran out of dill seed. And one of those little supermarket bottles wasn’t going to cut it.  I used to be able to get large quantities from The International Market in Spring Valley but they have unfortunately cut way back.  So we took off to the Bergen Restaurant Supply Co. in Pearl River.  In the past they have had the large jars of a lot (although not all) herbs and spices.  In the present it would appear they have moved to somewhere in the wilds of Jersey….We ended up at the health food store in New City (I never can remember their name) where they sell loose amounts of herbs.  We bought up their entire supply of dill seeds and the day was saved.

So, happily the whole house now smells like a pickle factory. A sure sign the fall is not far behind.
