In the 1900s, many immigrants from all parts of the world
came to the United States and brought family recipes to use
in the New Country. Greg Skufca’s great grandmothers were
no different. One brought with her the recipe for bootleg
liquor and built a still in her kitchen. (That’s another
story). The other great grandmother brought all her canning
knowledge with her.
Most recipes were not written down and were passed on
to the next generation by hands on example... from Greg’s
grandmother, to his father and ultimately to himself. One
big difference was that Greg wrote down the recipes, amount
of ingredients and the process. Greg would grow all his own
produce and can what he could for his friends and family
and there was one item that always stood out...the pickles.
After 25 years in the business world, Greg needed somethingmore to do. He decided he wanted more people to taste his pickles.
