Edna’s Pickles offers a line of Indian relishes and chutneys created with a unique blend of spices that give each flavour a perfect taste and texture. Edna Fernandes has always loved making pickles in various flavours, creating new blends and trying out new techniques. In 2004 she first showcased her pickles at the One of a Kind Spring Show in Toronto. Since the response was overwhelming she continued to exhibit at various Art & Craft Shows in Ontario.
With a natural flair and love for cooking, creating new recipes by experimenting with various methods, Edna has published her own recipe book 'Savour the flavour of India' - a collection of tried and tested Goan and other Indian recipes. Over the years she has continued to attract and establish a satisfied clientele. Her aim is to pursue to create ideal quality homemade products, addictive enough to have people coming back for more.
Indian relishes and chutneys are traditionally served with rice and are used to add flavour to a meal. A spicy pickle accents a mild curry and a sweet pickle complements a spicy curry. Today, pickles can accompany everything - rice, noodles, barbecued fish, grilled chicken and meats, roast beef and cold-cut sandwiches to enhance the taste. They can also be used as a dip with tortilla chips or bread, samosas, on hamburgers, hot dogs and even with goat cheese.
