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!

Maque Choux Salad with Phickles Pickled Okra

It’s officially summer ….and that means lots of fresh vegetables are at the markets and in our back yard. Here’s a quick and easy vegetarian recipe that makes a great side or add a protein containing bean to it (or bacon if you’re a carnivore) and call it a meal.

This recipe is easy to make your own. Change up the measurements to suit your taste and according to the vegetables you have available.
For our recipe: 3 cups cooked white corn (fresh is best but frozen is fine,) 10 of our Pickled Okra, 2 scallions (white and green parts of the stem,) 1 tsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp black pepper, 4 tbsp pickled okra juice. If you like spicy food…add a whole, sliced cayenne pepper like we did!
