Texas Pride and Pickle Friends

As many of you know, we wear the brand of a Go Texan product.

It's a program under the Texas Department of Agriculture that promotes the products, culture and communities of Texas.  You'll find in a pickle products with the glowing brand of Texas... on all of our labels, banners and hand-outs.  We'll have to say, we are partial to Texas but we love the rest of the world too!  Click on Go Texan within this blog and check out what Tommie Lee Jones and Nolan Ryan have to say about Texas... hey you'll like this even if your not from Texas...

We've hit many of the local Texas Farmer's Markets within the last few weeks and have had the opportunity to get to know some really great people like Trevious James, a young man we had the good fortune to meet last weekend in Dallas.  Trevious loved our pickles... but couldn't part with his hard-earned money because there was a video game with his name on it - well, we couldn't let Trevious not experience one of life's greatest moments - could we?  Here's Trevious after a splendiferous experience... and Trevious we hope your game is all that you had hoped and more!

It's amazing how many of our friends are coming out and supporting us in our pickle endeavour. 

We'd like to give a shout out to some truly

In a large pot, cover potatoes with cold water, bring to a boil and cook until tender, about 15 minutes.  Should be fork tender.

While potatoes are boiling, chop the following:  celery, pickles, and peppers.

In a medium pot, place your eggs in the pot and cover with water.  Bring the water to a boil.  Boil for 10 minutes.  Remove from burner and run cool water over eggs, peel and chop.  I use the whites and the yolks.

Drain potatoes and rinse in cold water.  Let cool in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

After potatoes have cooled, gently stir in the mustard and mayonnaise into the potatoes.  Add rest of ingredients.

Let cool in fridge for an hour. 
Garnish with paprika.
Great the day of... or even better the next day!
