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!

Alton Brown is aLIVE in Athens!

For years, Georgia native and uber food celebrity of the Food Network has entertained my kids and me and millions of other food lovers. He’s quirky in a genius who is up on trends kind of way and attention grabbing and…after meeting him the other night…I can say he’s NICE! He once sent out a tweet stating he ‘has a PhickleTini every day’ …which y’all can imagine made my day!
Phin and I pulled into a parking space in front of the iconic The Grill restaurant in downtown Athens last Thursday and with no change for the meter …stepped inside The Grill to ask for quarters …and there he was! Alton Brown in the flesh …doing exactly what I pictured he’d be doing while waiting for a burger. He was standing …taking a cellphone picture of one of many interesting relics The Grill has on display. I almost didn’t go over to his table …but what did I have to lose?! He’d either be nice or not or think I was crazy or …maybe he’d wind up being a friend.
To my surprise…he knew me as Phickles Pickles! …and he said “well, you have a great product.” …and I wanted to hug him but I told him I smelled like hotdogs because I’d just cooked hotdogs for our kids. He got up to take a picture with my husband and me and he agreed… I did smell like hotdogs. 😜 I guess now…he’ll remember me as the pickle girl in Athens who smells like hotdogs. And that’s fine by me! IMG_3912.JPG
Why is Alton Brown in Athens you ask? Well…he’s here to promote his show at the Classic Center and Phin and I get to go because Alton put our names on the list! You can go too! Find the details for his live shows at http://www.altonbrowntour.com
His show in Athens is this Tuesday October 21 …also upcoming shows in Greenville, Birmingham, New Orleans, Memphis and more.
He’s also a fan of the Georgia Bulldogs!

Follow his tweets for daily giggles …as he frequently answers questions with drawings on post-it notes.
And yes…we PHICKLED him! We always have a jar or two with us just in case. I hear Alton lives in Marietta …so I hope he visits The Local Exchange on the Marietta Square….where the Phickles are.
Get your tickets!
For me…it’s back to peddlin’ the pickles.
See ya!
