  • Jacob's Slightly Sweet Quick & Easy Pickle Recipe

    Posted on September 23, 2016


    Ever since I was knee high to a grasshopper, I’ve savored the sharp vinegary taste of pickles. Towards the end of each summer season, my Ma would preserve her garden’s cukes and other excess vegetables to carry our family’s tastebuds through the cooler months. Enjoying one of these with a meal is like biting into summer long after the solstice has passed.


    Although we may think of pickles as an American food, they have their origins in ancient times and were perfected and popularized by Jewish immigrants to the United States. Eastern Europeans depended upon them to add flavor to winter meals and no Jewish deli would be one without them.


    Pickling recipes are as plentiful as bees on a honeysuckle, it seems — so I’m pleased to present to you a really quick, easy, and flavorful recipe that’s been in my family for generations:


    Jacob’s Slightly Sweet Quick & Easy Pickles


    Kirby or Persian cucumbers. For these small cukes, you can put them in the jars whole, or cut up larger cucumbers into spears.
    Optional veggie options: cauliflower, string beans, or carrot spears
    1 1/2 cups white vinegar
    2 cups hot water
    1/2 cup sugar (for and more sour pickles, use 1/3 cup)
    2 tablespoons sea salt

    Per each jar:

    1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh dill
    1/2 teaspoon minced fresh or jarred garlic clove
    1 tablespoon each pickling spice (I’m partial to McCormick’s Mixed Pickling Spice; a piquant blend of whole and broken spices, seeds, and herbs. Or you may use a 1/2 teaspoon per jar of mustard seeds.)




    Rinse cucumbers and cut into spears if desired. Whisk together the vinegar, hot water, sugar, and salt until dissolved. Place the dill, garlic, and pickling spice in each pickling jar. Place the cucumbers or other veggies in each jar and fill with pickling juice until it reaches the top. Seal the jars and when room temperature, place in fridge.


    Cut cucumbers will be ready to enjoy in as little as 24 hours; whole cucumbers may take up to a week depending on one’s taste. The longer they soak, the more favorable they will become. Pickles will keep in fridge for up to 2-3 months.


    Enjoy with burgers, hotdogs, your favorite sandwich, a hearty Oktoberfest meal, or just by themselves for a snappy snack!

  • Raise A Toast to Jacob Bromwell's New 1819 Spirits!

    Posted on August 11, 2016


    For nearly 200 years Jacob Bromwell has been handcrafting American made flasks, cups, beer mugs, and more. Now it's time to fill those made in USA drinking vessels with liquor that is also proudly made here in the USA. Introducing Jacob Bromwell 1819 Spirits!


    Named after the year our founder started his manufacturing business, our line of 1819 Spirits are distilled by hand in small batches at American distilleries. Our pioneer liquors are  perfect for enjoying as part of your favorite cocktail, on the rocks, or sipped from your favorite Jacob Bromwell flask or cup.


    There are four liquors to savor. First, there's our 1819 Bourbon Whiskey, the original that inspired the line. Our American bourbon whiskey has a caramel color and aroma, with notes of citrus, black pepper, and ginger snap. Next is our brash 1819 Pioneer Rum, with an amber color and blackstrap molasses roots. For those that like their cocktails on the tony side, our 1819 American Gin offers a juniper and pine aroma with hints of orange, lavender, and cardamon. Lastly, enjoy our 1819 Silver Vodka served neat or as part of your favorite libation. Its taste features hints of sweet fruit and pepper for smooth sipping.


    All of our 1819 Spirits arrive in a handblown glass bottle, also made in the USA just like all of our products. So raise a toast to the American spirit with these spirits that are truly American!
