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. We are actively make connections with local farmers, as well as growing our own. 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 and other local matriarchs in Kerala, South India. Since then he has honed his craft through traveling abundantly and seeing 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.
---While we have the largest variety of our products at our Upstate Farmers Markets, we are happy to now offer you an 'online extravaganza'. Please note, our shipping may be a little slow as online sales are new to us.
- At this time, we can not ship out of the USA.
Thank you and enjoy our condiments at your home, on your food!

In traditional Ayurvedic practice, Turmeric and Ginger bring out the best in each other. By using salt rather than vinegar, this is a lacto-fermented pickle, with a quick pasteurization for shelf stability. Eating it is like having fresh turmeric and ginger every day. The fresh roots are pickled in their own juices brought out by the salt which helps to preserve and the lemon that softens the bitterness. Perk up your dishes with this tangy pickle, or as some do, eat it by the spoonful!
Turmeric Ginger Pickle is great in flavor opposition; with smoked foods, burger, meats, on vegetables, rice bowls, fish, salads as a salad dressing (thin with extra lemon, a little brown sugar).
Ing: Fresh Turmeric and Ginger Rhizomes (root), Lemon Juice, Salt and Time.
