Pickle Points

Jan 03, 2008

Okay, Pickle Points aren’t a new discovery, but I did discover this New Year’s Eve that they are absolutely plump and creamy-sweet right now. Pickle Point is a point shaped like, yes, a pickle (squint hard), and it’s in PEI National Park, not far from Raspberry Point. Indeed, the same man, Scott Linklater, grows both oysters. What’s the difference between a Pickle and a Raspberry? Same yin-yang shape and greenish shell. Both delicious. Pickles are a little older (seven years at harvest!) a little denser–and a lot rarer. If you see them, try them.
