What Makes Kosher Dill Pickles “Kosher”?

What ingredients make Kosher Dill pickles taste so delicious?  And why are they called “kosher” pickles? The term “Kosher dill pickle” has two connotations: one is religious – the word “kosher” comes from pickles that are manufactured and certified in accordance with Jewish dietary restrictions. To that end, all of Mt. Olive’s products – its full line of pickles, peppers and relishes – are certified as kosher by the Orthodox Union, the largest kosher certification agency in the world.

What Are Kosher Dill Pickles?

The second connotation of Kosher has to do with flavor. Though the term Kosher does mean that a product is manufactured and certified in accordance with Jewish dietary rules, a “kosher” dill pickle is not necessarily kosher. Rather, “kosher” also refers to the fact that it is a pickle made in the traditional manner of Jewish New York City pickle makers, with a generous addition of garlic and dill to a salt brine.

Today, Kosher Dill is the best-selling flavor of pickles. Mt. Olive Kosher Dill pickles provide a garlicky punch, and they are available in a variety of options, including spears, chips, sandwich stuffers, munchies, and petites. (Note that you won’t see garlic listed separately on the label of Mt. Olive Kosher Dill  items – the garlic is included as part of the natural flavors.)

Kosher Dill Pickles Make the Perfect Addition to any Meal

Mt. Olive Kosher Dill pickles, like the rest of Mt. Olive’s  product line, are gluten-free. They also boast few, if any, calories. Great for salads, sandwiches, soups, and other dishes, no meal is complete without a flavorful side of Mt. Olive Kosher Dill pickles. They are kosher, AND kosher.
