Pickles are divisive; you either love or hate them. Some people ask for extra on their burgers, other’s ask for none and return the burger if they taste even one ounce of pickle juice. Here’s a story that unites pickle lovers and haters.
Edna loved making pickles of various flavours with new blends and techniques. She fell in love with her home-made Indian pickles, which she promoted at community events. She set her sights on a bigger stage. In 2004, she showcased her pickles at the One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto and the response surprised her. Edna continued to exhibit her delicious pickles at Arts & Crafts Shows in Ontario.
Edna is very much a scientist in the kitchen, constantly experimenting to find new flavours and recipes, which she shares in her own published recipe books. “Savour the flavour of India” is a collection of Non-veg & Veg tried and tested Goan and other Indian recipes. It complements Edna’s other book, “Savour the Vegetarian Flavour of India,” which features vegetarian dishes only.
Over 16 years Edna continued to attract and satisfy new clientele. Her goal is to create the most addictive pickles, to keep pickle lovers coming back for more, and persuade even the harshest pickle critics.
Edna offers more than pickles. Below is Edna’s product line, if you’re interested, visit Edna’s site for more information: https://ednaspickles.com/ All jars of Edna’s Pickles are on sale now!
