*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 grow 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 are known for their holistic food using 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!
