What’s Naturally Fermented, Fantastic, and Yummy?
Anyone that knows me, knows I love dill pickles. Sometimes I even have them for breakfast and it’s always a great start to my day. Several people recommended I visit Barrel+ Brine to check out their pickles. So last week I stopped by their store at 257 Carolina and met Lindsey Marvin, one of the owners. I bought the NY Deli Dills and after tasting them decided they are close to perfect.
Lindsey recommended I try Winchester. Never heard of it. She explained Winchester was a house made probiotic drink that was made from fermented sweet potatoes, ginger, dairy whey, and warming spices. So glad for the suggestion because it was awesome. Some might even add some rum to this bubbly drink for a local, healthy cocktail.
I loved the store and the products they carry. Fine Ferments. Hand crafted-pickles. They also have Bloody Mary Gift Baskets which will be at the top of my holiday gifts list. You can also pick up these products at other locations, including Feel-Rite, Premier, and Lexington Coop.
Check out their website and Facebook page. These local products would be a great addition to your Thanksgiving table. I need to go get another jar of pickles for my relish tray. Mine are already gone.
