Frequent readers of my blog already know that each weekend there's a farmer's market in Addison Texas at the south east corner of Belt Line Road and the Dallas North Tollway. For the past 3 weeks, James Felps of In a Pickle has set up a tent and has been peddling his "splendiferously different" sweet-spicy pickles at the market.
Karen, James' wife, has been making pickles for over 17 years. She was looking for Christmas gift ideas and hit upon the pickle plan. She starts with her mom's recipe - cucumbers, chili peppers, sugar, natural spices, then adds other secret ingredients. The pickles are made in small batches in Fort Worth, Texas and are sold at Farmers Markets in North Texas and on the couple's website.
Come on out to the Addison Farmers Market on Saturday or Sunday. James has samples for you to taste and jars of pickles to sell. While sweet-spicy may describe me, I'm holding out for the sour pickles, reportedly in the works.
If you'd like to live in Addison to take advantage of the Addison farmer's market, give me a call. To talk to James & Karen, you can contact them at 817-584-5835.
