The Market in Grand Forks, BC – July 19

That’s right Folks

Tomorrow we have Sweet Jardiniere!

PckledVeggies copy

This is a pickled vegetable mix that we get more requests for than any other. It has many different names depending where you are from. Other names for this mix are – End of Garden Pickle, Piccalilli or ChowChow.

At Beary Good Stuff, we use the freshest ingredients! We get them at the farm markets we attend, from friends and from our own garden. After they are sliced, diced and blanched they are hand packed. The spices used go into the jar not into the brine and you’ll actually see a bud of garlic or a sprig of fresh Dill or the little hot pepper or a slice of horseradish root in a jar. We never use food colorings, preservatives, or any other additives. All you get is natural flavor and texture.

This product is made using an old (and cherished recipe from my Grand Father – just like our Bean Salad Recipe).  Once you taste them, we KNOW you will agree there are the best pickled veggies you can find!

These pickles are the perfect accompaniment to a meal or served ice cold as an appetizer.  The ingredients in this batch (145) are:

  • Yellow and Green Zucchini
  • Green Beans
  • Carrots
  • Onions
  • Red, Yellow and Purple Peppers
  • Lemon & Pickling Cukes
  • Cauliflower
  • Brocolli

Oh Yes! We would also like the folks who pre-ordered (via email) and stopped by the house to pick up their orders as they traveled through Midway! We love having our customers stop by and have a tail-gate tasting session (More on that when I find the Camera!)




About badkowalik

Prepared by hand and cooked in small batches – our preserves are cooked slowly. There is an average of 1.5 pounds of fruit in every 8 oz jar. Not only can you taste the difference – you can see the difference. Beautiful natural color and unmatched textures – that can only be achieved by the patience and experience of the Confiseur (the maker). There is alchemy to what we do. Like fine wines, each season has it’s own specific style. We create preserves with exceptional taste. Capturing these flavors is the craft of our business. Beary Good Stuff is a collection of seasonal, sustainable, artisinally made preserves. The collection is made (in limited quantities) from local fruits using traditional cooking methods. We use the freshest ingredients we can get. The small batch production insures a taste and texture that is unmatched in the commercial market today. The collection includes preserved fruits & vegetables – marmalades, jams, fruit butters & salsas, pickles and gift collections that reflect the bounty of the season and spirit of feasting. Although not necessary yet, we have received a letter from the BC Heath Authority. We submitted a package detailing how and where we made our products, what each recipe contains and how we prepare it. This letter is displayed in our tent at the Farm Market. We have our BC MarketSafe and FoodSafe certifications.
