*Unlike our spice jars, the pickles do not come with a plastic band around the cap. They're sealed like jam jars - you'll hear a slight 'pop' when you open them for the first time.*
We are in love with Atina Food's deliciously crunchy, Good Food Award finalist Garlic Scape Pickle. We had a small stash of Bird's Eye Chilis, a small but powerful chili grown by our partner farmer cooperative in Tanzania - and that turned out to be just enough to spice up their next batch of garlic scape pickles!
These pickles are created with all local scapes and Atina's blend of spices. They're a salt ferment with no added vinegar or water.
Try these on mashed potatoes, in a tuna salad, in salad dressings, or anywhere you'd use capers.

ABOUT ATINA FOODS
Real-life (and business) partners Carrie Dashow and Suresh Pillai launched Catskill, New York-based Atina Foods in 2015.
Atina Foods is known for their holistic food that uses local produce. Their recipes are evolved from Suresh's traditional upbringing in Kerala, South India, the ancestral home of Ayurvedic health practices and a place where one considers food as medicine eating for health is a practiced custom.
Each condiment has a carefully considered beneficial combination crafted to balance 6 basic tastes classified in Ayurveda as Sweet, Sour, Salty, Bitter, Pungent (hot) and Astringent (earthy/fermented), to generate a unique complexity of taste that is as delicious as it is beneficial to your health!
- garlic scape
- potato salad
A whole new flavor experience!
Just the right garlicky bite! Anytime we want a garlicky crunch in salads, we grab the jar. Potato salad, tuna, chicken, egg-it's all delicious.
I love pickled stuff, but garlic scapes are my favorite. If we are ever back in normalcy, this needs to go to the garlic festival in upstate New York! Delicious! One bottle is not enough and it’s so great that I can order it and get it delivered at home instead of searching for them at farmers markets. Delicious! I’m a fan.
I had never had a garlic scape before, but I love Burlap and Barrel so I thought I'd give these a try. I am now a garlic scape pickle fan! They are so good - I keep looking for ways to add them to whatever meal I'm eating.
