Our newest flavor, rhubarb ginger achaar (on the right, above) is now available for sale at Smorgasburg in Williamsburg on Saturdays until the end of June. The season is ripe with rhubarb and we are sourcing from a number of local farms to take advantage of the short season. Farms we are working with in the area are Samascott Orchards, Willow Wisp Organic Farms and Wilklow Orchards.
And it seems like we're not the only ones who enjoy a savory rhubarb, just a few days ago New York Times food writer Melissa Clark contributed this article on the topic: Rhubarb Flaunts Its Savory Side. Our achaar is reminiscent of a South Indian lemon or green mango pickle - tart and flush with the flavors of fresh ginger and green chilies.
Here's a sneak peek at our rhubarb label. Right now it's in black and white until we get our hot pink (yes, hot pink!) labels in the mail! This flavor will be in stores soon for a limited period of time so catch it while you can:)
