At Atina Foods, Everything is Made By Hand.
Our Jars are made from fine and whole ingredients, local when possible, otherwise from their country of origin. Local ingredients are generally uncertified organic, we are actively make connections with local farmers, as well as growing our own. A list of the farms we work with is in the works. Our recipes are crafted from Suresh's years of practice, travel and eating, where he learned to cook as a young boy with his mother in Kerala, South India. Since then he has honed his craft through travel and tasting how recipes have changed through the migration of the Indian Diaspora throughout the Middle East, South America and now here to our home of Upstate, New York, where we adapt these spice combinations with regional and global foods to create our unique taste! Thank you and enjoy our condiments at your own home!

By using salt rather than vinegar, this is a lacto-fermented pickle, with a quick pasteurization for shelf stability. Eating it is like eating the sunshine! With fresh turmeric and ginger every day.
