Pickled Green Tomato Season!

  
It’s pickled green tomato season here in Athens, GA and we are busy picking & pickling green cherry tomatoes from our organic garden! We pickle them whole …which makes them perfect in martinis or atop crudités with cheese. 

  
We make these in such tiny batches …that we limit purchases to one jar per shipment. $18 is the total …including the shipping costs. 

To order a jar…just email us your shipping address and a phone number to reach you for payment at tillmanphin@yahoo.com and be sure to mention you’d like the green cherry tomatoes!  

 If it ain’t PHUN….don’t do it!

Pimento Cheese and Pepper Jelly Cookies – Perfect Easter Treat!

  
We’ve made these cheesy cookies many times without the pepper jelly center …& they’re delicious either way. But for holiday get-togethers…. the addition of pepper jelly is a PHUN treat!

Here’s the how-to:

1 cup Phickles Brand ‘Southern Charm’ pimento cheese

1 cup sifted All Purpose Flour

2 TBSP Duke’s Mayonnaise (Since our pimento cheese is less greasy than most on the market…adding mayo helps for ease of mixing.)

1/4 Cup Softened or Melted Butter

*Mix above ingredients in a bowl with spatula or like we do…..with hands.

Press dough together into a round ball, wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge to chill for an hour.

*Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

*Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

*Using a teaspoon for good measure… Roll teaspoons of dough into balls. Flatten the balls with the bottom of a glass or other flat object. Place 1/2 of the flattened dough rounds onto the parchment paper lined baking pan. 

*Add a dollop of your favorite pepper jelly to the center of each flattened round. Then top the rounds with the other half of the dough rounds. Press the edges a bit to seal in the jelly.

*Bake at 400 for 15 minutes. 

*Let cool on counter & serve!

These are great cold ….so they are an easy make-ahead treat for parties.  

   
Some jelly will most likely ooze out…but trust me….it doesn’t matter! 

We used Vineyard Fire Spread from our North Georgia friends, Clark and Suzy who have created yummy preserves and spreads through their company, Unicoi Preserves. 

Bon Appetit, PHriends!
