In addition to Mt. Olive’s traditional dill pickles made to perfection with our traditional dill pickle recipe, Mt. Olive also offers dill pickle relish made with sea salt and hamburger dill chips. The term dill generally refers to pickles flavored with dill stems and they have a distinct, sour taste compared to our sweet gherkins.
Many people wonder what the difference is between dill pickles and kosher dill pickles. While the process of making these pickles is the same, the main difference is kosher dill pickles are made with garlic — a flavor most people associate with the traditional Kosher Dill recipe from New York, supervised by a Rabbi.
Dill pickles are made from cucumbers that haven’t fully matured. The cucumbers are preserved in a solution of vinegar, salt, and other flavorings. They maintain their crunchy texture even though they’re soaked in a salt and vinegar solution for weeks and months on end. Our dill pickles come as whole pickles and are also sliced, diced, and cut into shapes for stuffing sandwiches, topping burgers, and adding to other dishes.
Mt. Olive uses small and medium-sized pickling cucumbers with stems. These are selected based on their length, quality of the outer skin, and other factors to ensure we can guarantee a delicious product for all of our customers. Our pickles are simply pickling cucumbers that are harvested when they are smaller in size.
