The Pickle Guys is a gourmet Pickle Store on the Lower East Side. As far back as 1910 there have always been numerous pickle stores on Essex Street. Today The Pickle Guys are the last ones making pickles from an old Eastern European recipe. Just the way mom use to make them.This is a barrel cured pickle. The pickles are made by letting them sit in salt brine with garlic, spices, and no preservatives. Storing them in barrels, from a day up to six months, the pickles cure as they sit. The pickling industry has changed from vendors with push carts to merchants in little stores, and finally factories that manufacture pickles. The way The Pickle Guys make their products is just like the old days.
