CLINTON HILL — They're sweet on sour.

Peck's Specialty Food Shop is puckering up for a taste of a bygone era — enlisting a trio of young picklers from local startup The Gefilteria to whip up batches of "old world Jewish pickles" in the basement of the store.

Peck's, at 455 Myrtle Ave. near Washington Avenue, sells matzoh ball soup and a variety of other foods, but does not have fresh pickles.

"They are very talented picklers," said Peck's owner Theo Peck, who is the great-grandson of the owner of legendary Lower East Side eatery Ratner's. "I like working with The Gefilteria and I hope to eventually expand the items that they ferment for Peck's."
