The first strawberries sold at the world’s largest pickle and salt water resort in the United States are going for $3,000 a pound at the Cascades resort in Southern California.
The first strawberries from the Crescapes in the U.S. are priced at $3K a pound, said the owner of Cascadas Salsa, Jim Boulton.
Boulton said he will start selling strawberries to the public starting in July and expects it to go up to $5K per pound.
The strawberries will be shipped by a third-party company to a store in Seattle.
Cascades has a large variety of pickles, including cheddar, jalapeño, pepperoni and cheddar.
The pickle industry in the Pacific Northwest has seen a lot of growth in recent years.
“It’s not the type of pickle that you can just get at a grocery store, it’s not going to be your average supermarket,” Boulson said.
“But it’s a very good source of protein and nutrients.”
Boulson and his wife, Lisa, have been operating the Cescadas Sashimi in the resort for more than 20 years.
The family has become so accustomed to the taste of strawberries that the couple now sell strawberries from their home.
The Cascados Salsa has been operating for more, but Boulons is confident he can do it for a fraction of the cost.
“We’re going to do the same thing we’ve been doing for decades, the same way we’ve always done it, with a smaller amount of ingredients,” he said.
Bourbons pickles are not only good for you, they are also very tasty.
They taste just like fresh strawberries.
He said the taste is the best they’ve ever tasted and the prices are reasonable.
The strawberries have a high salt content, making them good for people with salt-sensitive diets.
They also taste just the same, although they are lower in sugar.
“We like the strawberries to have a saltiness,” Bouls said.
He adds the pickles will go with everything from pasta to sandwiches and wraps.
“I think the more you have salt in your diet, the better the flavor is,” Boultons wife said.
The Boulots also sell a variety of other seasonal products at Cascadia, including pickles and sauces.
“They sell the salt water for everything,” Bousons wife added.
The couple has already seen an uptick in demand for the strawberries.
People are asking if they are going to go back to the pickle they bought last year, Bouls said.
