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!
Ingredients: Fresh Cucumber, Water, Vinegar, Salt, Sugar, Onion, Peppers, Grape Leaf, Spices (*Contains Mustard Seed)
Since their introduction in 2009, there is no doubt that Great Grandma Skufca’s pickle recipes have become a huge hit. The Craze has begun! We receive calls and emails daily about how Trü Pickles have induced tearful memories of their own pickling relatives, caused people to dream in color, became an addiction, and in general have restored the belief that it is still possible to create something simple and out-of-this-world good. The biggest request that Trü fans have made is for a spicy variety. We listened, and we worked hard to create a spicy pickle that kept the original delicious flavor, and we finally got it. Trü Dill Heat pickles are crisp, flavorful, and Trü to Grandma’s original Old World great taste – but with a kick for those of you that love some heat! Sliced perfectly, you can enjoy as few or as many as your tongue can stand – but with each spicy bite you will still taste the pickle that brought people to tears in joy and fond memories of their own mothers and grandmothers! Try them on your sandwiches, substitute them for the jalapenos on your nachos, chop them into queso dip …. Turn up the Heat!

Years ago, the Skufca family would fire up the smokehouse to cure all their fresh meats. One day, Grandpa Skufca accidentally left some of the fresh cucumbers inside the smokehouse. Grandma Skufca had a good laugh and decided to go ahead and pickle those too, just for fun. Using Grandpa’s smoked cucumbers and her own delicious pickle recipe, she created the first smoked pickles! The amusing story of the smoked pickles was passed down over the generations, down to Greg. He enjoyed the story so much that he has worked hard to recreate that delicious mistake – and finally succeeded! The result is the Trü Smoked Black Pepper pickle – a pickle with a Trüly original outdoor-smoked flavor that cannot be found in any other pickle on the market. Slice them onto a sandwich or burger, chop them into tuna salad, potato salad, ground them into meatloaf … they give your foods a smoky dill flavor you will love! We think Grandma would be proud – we KNOW Grandpa would be!

Back in the day, Great Grandma Skufca took an exotic trip to India
where she discovered the beautiful taste of chai tea and decided to
blend that taste into her amazing pickle recipe. Okay, okay, that’s not exactly how it went down. Grandma never made it to India. Chai is, however, a delicious combination of cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and other spices that was traditionally brewed and used
to treat colds, flu, digestive issues and other health problems. But what intrigued us is that it is known as “grandmother’s chai”, as the grandmother was the traditional caretaker of the family in India and would brew these spices for her family. Then guess what? The recipes would be handed down through the generations for hundreds of years. Sound familiar? So we at Tru thought it would be an interesting idea to
pay homage to the Indian grandma by using chai spices in an offshoot
of Great Grandma Skufca’s Bread & Butter pickles. The result is our out-of-this-world delicious Chai Pickle – still using the Old World natural process that Tru Pickles has become known for, these pickles use only natural ingredients, no preservatives or
additives, are always crisp and tasty. Grandmas all over the world sure do know best!
