FOOD HOLIDAY: International Pickle Week ~ May 15-25

Is there anything more dill-icious than International Pickle Week? It was founded more than 60 years ago by Pickle Packers International, a trade association. The U.S. produces 20 billion pickles each year, an average of nine pounds of pickles per person. So for all the people who don’t eat pickles, or those who eat just a few slices on their Big Macs, imagine how many pounds of pickles the true pickle lovers eat! Fortunately, they’re low calorie and good for you!

Pickles are categorized as a condiment, from the Latin condire, to season. Go to for recipes, picklewear (we like the “Get Pickled” tee), recipes, coupons and pickle e-cards.
