The history of pickles dates back thousands of years, with evidence of pickling dating back to ancient civilizations such as the Mesopotamians, Egyptians, and Greeks. Pickling was a common method of preserving food before the advent of refrigeration, allowing people to store food for long periods of time. Pickles were also popular among sailors, who would take pickled vegetables on long voyages to prevent scurvy. Lucky for us, we don’t need to eat them to prevent scurvy. The Ocean City Pickle Company crew has been working the past few days trying to get the new location ready to go. As seen from the photo they uploaded, the signs are now up on the windows and things are coming along fast. So mark your calendars for Memorial Day weekend and get ready to celebrate the grand opening of the new Ocean City Pickle Company.
