A Taste of Local Legacy: It was 1958 when Lee Oakleys mother Leila started making her famous pickles in a 6-gallon earthenware crock on the kitchen counter in her Nashville home. Her secret family recipe with a unique blend of spices and a 14-day process was treasured and brought up through the years to become a staple of the Southern table. Lee still makes these Picklelicious Sweet & Spicy snacking pickles with the same treasured recipe and that signature snap in every bite. In addition Oakleys Southern Delights offers Spreadalicious Sweet & Hot Pepper Jelly that is a perfect balance of "sweet heat" and ideal for appetizers, dressings and more! These items can be found in groceries, restaurants, specialty shops, hotel gift shops, catering shops and on their website.
