Doux South

Nick Melvin of Doux South is a lifelong pickling devotee, having been trained in the Southern style by his mother, with vegetables straight from their garden in New Orleans. Now in Georgia, Nick is adding his own modern touches, and uses produce from local organic farmers in the area.

A tip straight from the maker: “With pickles this good, you may feel like crying when there are none left. Thankfully, the adventure does not end there – because Doux South pickle brine is a terrible thing to waste!”
