For the sweetheart that doesn't like sweets... it's a pickle bouquet!
Grillo's Pickles out of Boston came up with the the salty treat as healthy, delicious alternative for Valentine's Day. At first, they just offered a tutorial on how to make the bouquet yourself (see below)... but it has been so popular, they have now opened up a limited number of bouquets for delivery in the Boston area.
To make your own:
- (1) Start spearing the pickles on your skewers until the bunch is your desired size.
- (2) If you'd like to share in a vase, we recommend using floral foam to stick the skewers into as you arrange. If you'd like to present as a bouquet, wrap the ends of skewers with tissue paper.
- (3) Garnish the bunch with your choice of festive (or delicious) extras, from fresh herbs to colorful peppers.
- (4) Share with your sweetie! Snap a pic and send our way firstname.lastname@example.org
