BERTIE COUNTY DEW DROP DILL PICKLE PEANUTS

$8.00

Dew Drop Road, near Colerain, is located on the banks of the beautiful Chowan River. Colerain was once a colonial port for ships that carried tobacco, lumber, and dried herrings (fish) to England and other countries in Europe. On the return trip the ships brought textiles and other items not yet produced. Among those products were probably dill and other spices. Dill is an herb that is mentioned in writings that are thousands of years old. It was used, along with garlic, for its culinary and medicinal properties. Back in the day, local farmers delivered their cucumbers to the train depot in Windsor where the vegetable was stored in brine in large, wooden barrels until needed for processing. Dill pickles became a standard snack in the area and were often served, along with saltine crackers, to children at Easter Egg Hunts. Americans eat a lot of pickles, 8 – 9 pounds per person per year, so this is not a new flavor for most of you. But, the combination of our crunchy Blister Fried Peanuts with the strong flavor of dill and garlic makes a bold statement. Enjoy!

About Bertie County Peanuts:

Peanut picking is a busy time in Bertie County. Each fall farmers race to ensure the year’s harvest is coaxed from the sandy soils at the peak of the peanuts’ naturally fresh flavor.

During this time of the year Papa Jack would treat the local farmers (and a few hungry grandchildren) with a snack dug from the local peanut fields. Frying freshly dug peanuts in the old popcorn popper became a beloved tradition, nearly as anticipated as the harvest itself!

Bertie County Peanuts pays homage to this nostalgic treat with their line of peanut snacks and treats. Their products carry with them the fresh peanut taste that is only found in a freshly harvested crop. We invite you to taste tradition and enjoy!
