Happy Thanksgiving!

     We are settling in for a great Thanksgiving here at in a pickle foods!  James may throw on a Kahlua Turkey (that's a young turkey rubbed down with sea salt and pepper and slathered with Kahlua every 30 minutes until done) and there may be pumpkin pie or pecan pie... but one thing we know for sure the boys (Angus and Mac) will be with us AND we are sure to celebrate with friends and family.
     If you need a festive Thanksgiving appetizer to make and take try our 

in a pickle NUTTY CHEESE BALL ... 

1/4 cup softened reduced fat cream cheese (Neufchatel)
16 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
3 TBL low fat mayo
3 TBL in a pickle Original, chopped
1 TBL in a pickle Original, brine
1 TBL in a pickle Original, peppers
pinch of sea salt
pinch of pepper
1 1/2 cups pecans, toasted and finely chopped

Toast pecan halves at 350 degrees, stirring once for  7 - 9 minutes let cool and chop

Process cream cheese, add cheddar cheese and all other ingredients into bow, mix well, cover and chill for 30 minutes.  Roll mixture into 1 inch balls and cover with chopped pecans.  


We are thankful for all our pickle peeps and the joy of the holiday season... from our home to yours...Happy Thanksgiving!
