Years ago, in Old Europe and in this country, sugar was very scarce. For this reason, Bread & Butter pickles were a delicacy and saved for very special occasions. They were considered a great treat! But have you ever noticed that other Bread & Butter pickles have a very yellow tinted juice? That’s because sugar turns a cucumber a bluish gray color (known as sugar shock), so other companies add yellow coloring, or turmeric and polysorbate to their pickles – yellow and blue makes green! Great Grandma Skufca did not have additives – and she did not need them! She knew that adding a grape leaf to the jar kept the natural green color of the pickles, even with the added sugar – no need to dye them green again! It keeps them crisp and crunchy too! That’s why you will find our Bread & Butters to be clear, crisp and delicious, unlike any other Bread & Butter pickle on the market!
