Decades later, Josh Kilmer-Purcell and partner Brent Ridge continue to grow the line of Byles’ heirloom tomatoes in their gardens at Beekman 1802 Farms. It’s these fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, along with real garlic, summer onions, and herbs, that add flavor to every jar of “Mortgage Lifter” Heirloom Tomato Pasta Sauce. Beekman 1802 Farms continues to honor its ties to small farms by donating 25% of the profits to small American farmers.
 
For more fresh flavor from Beekman 1802 Farms and its heirloom tomatoes, try “Mortgage Lifter” Bruschetta topping or Barbecue Sauce.
 
The Bruschetta topping has fresh chunks of heirloom tomatoes, olive oil, hand-chopped pieces of garlic, onion, basil, and parsley. It makes the perfect snack or appetizer over toasted bread. Spicy “Mortgage Lifter" Bourbon BBQ Sauce has a kick, though honey, molasses, and real bourbon do take the edge off.
 
Fans of the Cooking Channel may already know Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge as The Fabulous Beekman Boys. The reality show follows the pair during their pursuit of the full-time farming like on Beekman 1802 Farms.  Judging by the tastes of these hearty, flavor-filled sauces, Josh and Brent are getting the hand of things!
 

Flavor & Fun from Phin & Phebes

Right now, we are lucky enough to be the only place in Texas you’ll find these amazingly crave-able pints of pure pleasure. Fun for adults and kids, unpretentious, surprising in the best possible way, it is simultaneously unconventional and yet strangely familiar and comforting. You’ve got to try this!
 
Three years ago, Crista Freeman (Phin, from Phinizy, a family name) and Jess Eddy (Phebe, her middle name) worked in software consulting and e-commerce management, with no idea ice cream would become a big part of their lives.  One night, a lackluster store-bought pint inspired them to try making their own at home. Encouraged by their loved ones, Crista and Jess started selling their ice cream to the public at the Brooklyn Lyceum Fair and quickly sold out. Taking this as a sign to move forward, Jess and Crista rented space in a commercial kitchen and began making batches of half pints while continuing to work their day jobs. In late 2010 Jess and Crista quit their jobs and fully embraced Phin & Phebes. 
 
I personally couldn’t be happier that they did. This brand has renewed my interest in and enjoyment of ice cream.  When speaking with Crista earlier today, I mentioned that the Dark Chocolate Salty Caramel was my favorite, closely followed by Peanutty Pretzel. She then rocked my world when she suggested I try them together.  I will, Crista., I so totally will!  And then I’ll start working my way through other flavor combinations until either my pants no longer fit or I’ve perished from the dreaded and feared Brain Freeze.

The sauces’ name comes from a bit of good fortune at the hands of a green thumb. In 1929, farmer Marshall Cletis Byles was about to pay off his mortgage in full when he sold the seeds for his award-winning heirloom tomatoes.

Texas Tango

The Mamas created new, homemade recipes they describe as “Latin with a twist,” taking inspiration from the spicy cuisines of Baja, Argentina, and Mexico.

But, let us personally encourage you to think beyond chips-n-salsa, or even chips-n-dip. Instead of thinking of only snacks or appetizers, think of an entire meal. Two Hot Mamas Salsas and Dips can do for your favorite meals exactly what they can do for your best tortilla chip. For a start try the Mamas’ recipes with tacos, quesadillas, huevos rancheros, scrambled eggs, then get adventurous and dab this dip into pork, beef, lamb, over pasta, or with crudites.

Before you get creative, be warned. The Mamas’ Roasted Almond Chimichurri with Mint and Creamy Cilantro Salsa Dip are available in Medium heat and Hot, and the hot is not for the faint of heat, er, heart.

Find these Mamas in the Dairy section of your store.
