As the EKO sleepover children wake up this morning in Pigg’s Playbarn & have breakfast in the Creamery Cafe, Apley Farm Shop is getting ready for Salop Pickle Works to come & offer free tasters to customers & visitors between 11am & 3pm today.

Based in Shrewsbury (Shropshire) & specialising in pickled products, they use traditional pickling techniques passed down from generation to generation, combined with modern twists.

Here’s a bit from Salop Pickle’s website: “I started making my own pickled onions back in 1975, newly married, mortgaged up to the hilt, no spare cash for pickles or luxuries. Grow your own and pickling them, was the only way to go. I started with the traditional pickled onion (Nan Fipkin’s recipe – which evolved into Fipkin’s Famous!) then over the years as tastes changed, we saw & tasted more food from overseas, Italian, French, Chinese & Indian. I started to perk up my onions adding a bit more spice & more black peppercorns. I developed the recipes until I created the signature taste that our customers know & love.
