Fans of the famous Pumpkin Patch pickles and jalapeño peppers will still be able to get these popular delicacies, but orders must be placed no later than August 1st. They will be available in September thanks to the efforts of Carolyn Duckworth and crew who are making them over the summer.
The pickles are made from an old family recipe passed on to Duckworth by an aunt. The Sweet & Zesty Jalapeño Peppers is a new recipe developed by Duckworth in 2013 and was a popular seller at the 25th and final Pumpkin Patch.
A pint jar of pickles is $7.00 and the Sweet & Zesty Jalapeños are $6.00 for a half-pint size. A case of 12 pints of pickles may be ordered for $84 and jalapeño peppers by the case are $72.
Orders must be received by August 1st and may be placed by calling Duckworth at 972-772-0752 or by e-mail to Carolyn_smu67@sbcglobal.net. The items may be picked up at the Rockwall County Library between 11:00 and 1:00 p.m. at the September 9th and October 14th meetings of Friends of the Library, or on other dates by special arrangement. No deliveries will be made.
All proceeds from the sale of the pickles and peppers will benefit the library. Profits from their various fundraising events supplement the County library budget, paying for special children’s programming, adult literacy programs, periodical subscriptions and other items needed by the library. The local Friends of the Library group is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and works to promote the interest and welfare of the Rockwall County Library.
