If you like pickles in any capacity, we certainly hope you’ve discovered the Cornichon. These delightful pickles are not only adorable, thanks to their diminutive size, but also delicious! The perfect blend of sweet and sour dill flavors, make these tiny pickles the ideal addition to any cheese plate, appetizer bar, or hors d'oeuvre tray. Imbued with a crunchy texture and acidic bite, cornichons are a perfect pairing for cheeses, pate, and cured meats, their tart zesty flavor balancing out rich and salty foods beautifully.
Cornichons are produced in a slightly different manner than the more traditional pickles you’ll find in the grocery store. Made from mini Gherkin cucumbers, they are harvested when they have only reached a length of 1-2 inches. Because they are collected before they reach full maturity, they remain extra-crunchy and retain a flavor far more tart than full-sized pickles. Translating to “little horns” in french, Cornichons are aptly named for their sharp taste.
If you’re looking for the high-quality and traditional taste of classic French Cornichons, look no further than Marky’s sweet and sour dills. Made from the very finest organic French gherkin pickles, they are processed carefully to retain maximum flavor and crunch. Use them as a garnish or mince them up for a flawless addition to steak tartare or a seafood tartar sauce. However you employ these tasty little pickles, we’re sure you’re going to love the enjoyable crunch and tart flavor they add to your dishes.
