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. We Cannot ship out of the USA. Thank you and enjoy our condiments at your home, on your food!

In traditional Indian practices, Turmeric and Ginger bring out the best in each other. By using salt rather than vinegar, this is a lacto-fermented pickle that is canned 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).
Whole Garlic cloves preserved in a tamarind and jaggery (a minimally processed Indian sugar). Delicious! With a deep almost barbecued flavor, the thick semi sweet and tangy brine, plumed with full garlic cloves and steeped for a unique exciting flavor. Kids love it! Great with cheese on crackers, on sandwiches, meats, vegetables. The older the better with this Garlic pickle! Hand Silkscreened label! Vegan.

Suresh's favorite from Bombay, Maharashtra. Garlic Slow Roasted in three oil nuts; sesame, coconut and peanut. Lovely to crumble on sandwiches, soups, salads, yogurt, eggs, use it as a rub, or add honey and make it sweet!
Made with peaches from our own reincarnated Peach tree, we think of this chutney as an invigorator. Only made in season this is a limited edition. Not too spicy and milder than our others, this spicy, sweet and sour chutney is a delicious addition to sandwiches, chicken, vegetables, wraps.
Using our traditional Inji Puli (Ginger Tamarind Chutney) recipe, replacing the traditional Tamarind with Rhubarb that we can grow ourselves, for the sourness, we have come out with a softer localized version. Pairs beautifully with cheeses, sweet potatoes, meats, vegetables and lentils, this smooth, sour, spicy and a bit sweet chutney actually makes our customers cry, because they love it so much. Limited Quantity, if unavailable online, we may still carry at the markets.
