thanks for the post....when I was up north a few weeks ago, they were for sale for $12.99 per jar in Harbor Springs. I am still enjoying the McClures-esque style pickles I canned myself last summer. This year, I will try to master the Bloody Mary mix - I'll have to taste that first.
momskitchen, I actually did taste the mix at the RO farmers market and really liked it. I bought a jar, then made a Bloody Mary with it. I think the larger quantity vs. the tiny sample was just oo much. YMMV, of course!
