Bolder Beans started as a wonderful addition to a Bloody Mary. Just add a couple pickled green beans instead of a piece of celery, and your Bloody Mary is transformed. These spicy, pickled beans add a lot of flavor and kick up the zip in any Bloody Mary. Owner of Bolder Beans, Rogue Edwards, stated, “I first tried a pickled green bean in a Bloody Mary in New Orleans. When we returned home to Colorado, we couldn’t find anything we liked, so I decided to make my own!”

Bolder Beans come if three tasty flavors: mild, medium and hot. The mild beans have a big, bold, dill pickle taste that are crunchy and zesty without the added heat. For the medium flavor, a jalapeño is added to the jar to give it a big, bold kick with a peppery jalapeño taste. A habañero is added to the hot and gives the bean a sweet heat. Enjoy all three of these flavors for a different taste with just the right amount of heat. Whether they are chopped up in a salad, added to a Bloody Mary, or eaten right out of the jar as a good snack or an easy appetizer, they are sure to please any pickle person.

In addition, Bolder Mushrooms, Bolder Garlic and Bolder Mix-Up are tasty treats for those who love pickled foods. Bolder Mushrooms are mild with an earthy mushroom taste that complement the pickling flavor to produce the perfect texture, tenderness and taste. Add Bolder Mushrooms to omelets, pizzas, salads or even a martini for a zip that will awaken your tastebuds.

Bolder Garlic is the perfect treat for the garlic lover. Each jar is filled to the top with individual garlic cloves that have been pickled to perfection giving each bite a mellow garlic flavor with a punch of pickle flavor and the heat of a jalapeño. Use them wherever you use garlic, or eat them right out of the jar. Just make sure that others eat them with you!
Finally, Bolder Mix-Up is an easy “appetizer in a jar.” This combination of pickled veggies includes green beans, carrots, cauliflower and mushrooms. It is the perfect addition to a relish tray and each veggie has a bold, pickle taste that is available in mild for everyone to enjoy!

Greenview Kitchen, a brand of organic sauces manufactured by Giovanni Food Co. Inc., has received the Non-GMO Project
Verification seal for its organic pizza sauce and organic bruschetta. The verification was awarded by the Non-GMO Project. Greenview Kitchen is one of the first brands of organic pizza sauce and organic bruschetta topping to receive this verification. “We plan to continue the verification process for all future organic products under the Greenview Kitchen brand,” said Louis DeMent, CEO of Giovanni Food Co.
