Philadelphia-based pickled beets
Historically fruits & vegetables have been pickled to ensure a preserved supply for when they were out of season. However local Philadelphia resident and Crisp & Co founder Thomas Peter believes pickling is not just a means of extending shelf life but rather preserving exceptional produce at peak freshness and flavor!
It’s exactly that approach that led Crisp & CO to creating these award winning beets! In order to maintain the rich natural flavor very little sugar is added to the Pinot Noir Beets, making them very different than traditionally ultra sweet pickled beets. True to their name these beets are made with Pinot Noir wine and a variety of spices including fresh ginger, cloves, orange peel, bay leaf, and black pepper.
Previous to founding Crisp & Co Thomas Peter was an analyst at a large financial institution, then later got his masters of biomedical engineering and became a cancer researcher at Cornell University. He utilizes his training as a scientist and his interest in molecular gastronomy to perfect the texture and flavor of the produce he preserves - creating delicious, flavorful pickles our customers love. Peter partnered up with Linda Ziedrich of A Gardener's Table and author of The Joy of Pickling and The Joy of Jams, Jellies, and Other Sweet Preserves to develop some of the recipes used in Crisp & Co pickles.
