“We pickle all kinds of local vegetablesbaby carrots and beets, onions, cauliflower, shishito peppers, jalapeÃ±os, habaneros. We have a jar of pickled vegetables on our menu, but we also use them as flavor vehicles for things like mayonnaise, mustard, and aioli. We try to make sure that almost every item on the menu is accessible in our retail butcher shop, so we sell our pickled vegetables there, too. Pickling is just one of our staple techniques.
