todayWhen you are looking to kick up the flavor look no further than Piedmont Provisions! Owner Heather Russell handcrafts small batch preserves, herbal vinegar infusions, old-fashioned drinking vinegars (shrubs), bitters, pickles, relishes and all things fermented. She began to preserve when she grew an abundance of produce in her own garden. “I started with pickles, then salsa, and I basically worked my way through the Ball canning book and taught myself,” says Heather. “I spent most of the summers in south Georgia helping my mother garden and preserve. We come from a long line of farmers and homesteaders, so this kind of food preservation takes me back to my roots.”
She also sources locally grown food as well as some from her own garden in order to supply her eager customers—but all of it is prepared in small batches to continue the tradition of quality and freshness. “Everything I make is by hand in small batches, which allows me to create interesting flavor combinations that you’ll never see in a retail store, like the pear kimchi that I made from the summer harvest. The food we create is a true artisanal craft; it takes a lot of time and effort. It’s not an incredibly profitable business, but it helps build local food security. Any time you support local farmers and food artisans, you help rebuild our local food network. People now, more than ever, want to know where their food comes from.”
