We’ve been experimenting with BLUEBERRIES!

Angie spotted pretty, plump organic blueberries from Burge Organic Farm at Peachtree Road Farmers Market and went blueberry bonkers! …and she couldn’t rest ’til she tried her hands at pickling some….since ’tis the season.

So…she gathered some lemon thyme from her kitchen garden, a mild pepper, and some sugar …and got busy!

Her trial batch only made seven jars. One for her to take around to local phickley spots to see what everyone thinks and six to sell at the market.

They are sure to go fast…so get to the market early tomorrow! We’ll be purchasing more blueberries at the market tomorrow and pickling more…but for now…the star of the show is just six tasty jars. Our favorite way of enjoying them is with blue cheese. …would make a great sweet and savory bruschetta!
The chef demo will be at 10am tomorrow. Chef Thomas from the Grand Hyatt in Atlanta will be using tomatoes, peppers, chevre, thyme, bay leaves, onion, and garlic. It’s sure to be delicious and informative. Also…there will be a canning demo. There are many yummy ways to preserve all the goodies found at the market. Martha will be able to answer all your questions and get you inspired to get canning!
