Here’s how to give your pantry a Brooklyn Makeover: Switch out your common sriracha, mustard, granola, and relish with a local purveyor’s goods; I recommend Ft. Greene Farms. The brand recently launched with four small batch, all natural, locally sourced products: Charred Sriracha Sauce, Whole Grain Mustard Spread, Homemade Granola, and Hot Pepper Relish. Each batch consists of no more than 250 jars, with each jar being cooked, filled, and labeled by hand.
Ft. Greene Farms was created by Nate Meshberg (of Chef Michael White’s Marea & Morini, and Tasting Table Corporate Kitchen). He found himself experimenting with new condiments and side dishes in his spare time, and wanting to share those creations, he launched Ft. Greene Farms with the freshest goods from local farms.
I taste tested each item, and was astounded by the quality and amount of flavor packed into each product. The mustard became my go-to aoli ingredient, the sriracha made its way into my stir-fry and soba noodles, and the granola took on a granola bowl at breakfast. I had never purchased a pepper jelly ore relish before, but it quickly became my favorite of the four– a fantastic addition to a grilled cheese sandwich and plenty of cheese plates.
Ft. Greene Farms succeeds in elevating breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack time. Get yours here.
