I have two fairly similar questions. I haven’t been in the Boston area for very long, and I am trying to look for tasty pickled cucumber/ gherkins/ capers, etc. around the area. I’ve tried the antipasti bars at Whole Foods, and some mass market brands available around here, but I have not found something yet that sends me to pickle heaven. Often times I found the taste a bit ‘unbalanced’. But I am sure there are a lot of local makers that I haven’t discovered. Hence the questions:
Where can I find the great pickled goodness around here, regardless of value? These I intend to eat and savor by themselves.
Where can I find great and great value pickled goodness around here? These I intend for things like sandwiches and snacking in quantity.
Some places I have heard good things about but yet to try: Grillo’s, Berezka. Any other I should give a shot?
