Over fifteen years ago, Jan Williams sampled some pickles at a health food shop she visited. While eating them, she remembered pickles that she enjoyed as a child made by her beloved Aunt Imy. Jan was inspired to create a recipe of her own, based on her Aunt’s pickles. Soon she had a recipe she thought tasted much better than the store-bought pickles, which was enjoyed greatly by friends and family.
Jan asked a friend to take some to a craft show sale with her. On the morning of the show, her friend called her to say they were already SOLD OUT! Jan and her husband, Glenn, worked diligently every evening the following week making more pickles for another craft show. They completed many times over the quantity they had made before, and the pickles sold out on the FIRST DAY, AGAIN!
It was not hard to see that Jan and Glenn had something special, and they began making the pickles in an old school cafeteria in Dacoma, Oklahoma. Soon, orders began coming in so fast they had to hire help to fill them all. Today, the pickles are now made and packed by S & S Foods in Mustang, OK. They continue to be made with the same care and quality as the very first jar Jan made all those years ago.
