Chef Marc has created a new pickle recipe for JC Food schools that is sure to please all of our enthusiastic eaters! Not only is this pickling recipe delicious, it is also low in sodium and low in sugar!

These pickles are a wonderful accompaniment to many dishes served in our schools, such as our grilled veggieburgers, hamburgers, wraps and sandwiches. They also have that great crunch we all look for in a pickle! We are so crazy about this new pickling process that we wanted to share it with our readers.

We start by slicing fresh Kirby cucumbers into spears, chips, sandwich stackers, or extra thick chips.

Then, the pickling liquid is made, and the cucumbers are placed in the liquid to marinate for about 3 days. Then they are just right and ready for our students to eat!

While cucumbers are notorious for being pickled, our chefs have pickled other veggies too, such as our zucchini chips (which are quite amazing), beets, carrots, and cauliflower!

These homemade pickles are just another dish that help us keep our commitment to serve healthy and nutritious lunches!
