Fun In The Low Country

With the growing popularity of Phickles in the low country, we’ve been headed back and forth from Athens to the marsh a lot lately. For our kids, these trips always start out with lots of “are we there yets?”  Between filling station pit stops for gas and jerky and sweet treats ….when they’re not entertained by electronic devices, they sleep.

The Phickles kids were happy to wake up at Mainline Market in St. Helena, South Carolina! Mainline Market has everything from fresh produce, wine and beer ….to local art, fishing tackle and crab traps.  The kids were happy to find beef sticks and skittles and sugary beverages and we were happy to find fresh fish and crab claws!

If you’re headed to Fripp or Harbor Islands, ya gotta make a quick stop at Mainline Market for fresh, locally-caught fish and local veggies and anything else you forgot to pack. It’s a fun place to look around. They’re always getting in new things. We even got to meet the artist who makes the adirondack chairs they sell.  We’re proud to know Phickles are there on the shelves above the produce and also near their bloody mary mixers. Yes, they have EVERYTHING!

A quick delivery, a few pictures, some jerky and boiled peanuts ….and we were on our way for a little relaxation and playtime at the Westin on Hilton Head Island. We got to the island just in time to hit the beach for sunset.

I love sharing our story with our PHriends. We face struggles every day …but all in all, we have a good, fun life ….and for that we are grateful.  I hope our story of selling only to locally-owned stores and restaurants inspires all in our path to support other mom ‘n pops like us. If you like following along with our day-to-day doings, I update on a daily basis on our facebook page. Scroll around on our home page and find the facebook widget and click ‘LIKE!’

Pickled Blueberries!

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.

20120713-202738.jpg
So…she gathered some lemon thyme from her kitchen garden, a mild pepper, and some sugar …and got busy!

20120713-202924.jpg
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!

See y’all at Peachtree Road Farmers Market!
…and next up…I’m pickling PEACHES!

Local Love

When we started Phickles….we decided we would only sell wholesale to locally-owned stores and restaurants. This decision has made the world closer….& everywhere we peddle to…we feel like we are neighbors! We love it….& we hope our PHriends will join with us in supporting the PHine establishments that have supported and continue to support us.
