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!

Hop Harvest Festival – and a batch of Beer Brined Sausage

In anticipation of Terrapin Brewery’s annual Hop Harvest Festival, I’m using their beer in different pickling recipes to share in our tent at the festival. Today…I made Beer Brined Sausages with Terrapin’s RYE Pale Ale and Little Smokies from Hillshire Farm. They taste great!

Chicken Salad and Pickle Wrap

Six simple ingredients to a delicious, quick meal for anytime of day. I actually made this for breakfast today…it’s a good balance of carbs, protein, fiber & salty yumminess from the pickles!

I gave a flour tortilla a squirt of Sriracha chili sauce, then layered on arugula, chicken salad, our House Pickles & black pepper.

The chicken salad is available here in Athens at Bell’s Food Store. It’s a recipe from an old Athens favorite …the Five Points Deli …that was a popular spot with locals for many years until it sadly closed a few years ago. Fortunately, we can still get a taste of it by picking up a container of it at Bell’s …a family owned and run grocery store that has all the regular stuff with a large selection of locally-loved food items. Bell’s is also a home to our pickles and the best, fresh meat in town.

Have a great day and remember to give some love to the stores who are supporting small food producers just like us. My morning devotion today was all about being Salt and Light…so I’m hoping I’ve shed a little light today …about a great place to shop…& the salt part…well, that ones easy! It’s in the PICKLES!
