Grandma Rose could hand-pack an absolutely delicious pickle and hand-pick the absolutely perfect husband. Years after her passing, Grandma Rose sat upon my shoulder the day I met my angel, the man who would become my husband and whispered, "He's the one."
Inspired by Grandma Rose's recipe for pickles and named for my husband Duke, we've been making Duker's Dills for years and giving them as gifts to friends and family. A few years back, I had the opportunity to take a class called “Getting Your Recipe to Market” offered by the Small Business Development Center and Food Innovation Center in Portland. This was the first baby step to this wonderful, crazy adventure.
We have continued to move forward taking baby steps, and today our line includes Duker's Dills Garlic Dill Pickles, Duker's Dills Hot Pickles, Duker's Dills Hot Beans, Duker's Dills Hot Carrots, Duker's Dills Hot Garlic Cloves, Duker's Dills Hot Sugar Snap Peas, Duker's Dill Hot Tomatoes, Duker's Dill Sweet Hot Dil Pickles, Rose's Rosemary Lemon Beans, and Rose's Rosemary Lemon Asparagus.
We're excited to share our absolutely delicious pickles with you.
