Farmer's Markets in Full Swing

          

We are into our 5th week at the markets and they are getting busier with more produce growers and vendors popping up every Sunday.

If you haven't visited our Facebook page, you may not know that we have a booth at the Old South Pearl Street and Highland Square Farmers Markets on Sundays thru October.  We are open from 9am to 1pm and alternate between the two, so check the calander on our Facebook page to find which market we will be.  https://www.facebook.com/oomommie

What's in a Name?

Most of our customers are hip and savvy foodies and understand that the OO MOMMIE name is a play on the original Umami term from Japan. It is most commonly known today as the fifth flavor on our palate, but there is more to it than that, of course, being a Japanese meaning.  A friend found this article on the original word and meaning that I thought food geeks and fans would enjoy. It is titled, Umami - The Beautiful Taste.                                         We hope to emulate the beautiful taste in each bite out of every OO MOMMIE jar.

Limited Edition

Throughout out the growing season OO MOMMIE will be presenting Limited Edition products that can only be found at the farmer's markets.

We are always playing with seasonal ingredients we get from local growers. Thank you to Miller Farms for letting us take all Your green tomatoes and red onions last week so we could feed our canning obsession.  http://www.millerfarms.net/

The Red Onion Marmalade is made with Lime and a touch of crushed red pepper to bring just enough heat to the bitter-sweet-savory marmalade that would be perfect on deli sandwiches or a cheese platter or as a glaze on grilled chicken.

The Green Tomato Relish, made with Shallots caramelized in Bacon Fat, is spiced with Coriander and would be the crowning glory on any Burger or Dog.

Get your jar this Sunday.
