Read on about this Nashville based company in this Q&A with Courtney Nass. What made you go into the business of making gourmet jams and jellies?

I have always loved all things culinary. I started making a few jars and selling them on the farmers market circuit around Nashville. The business really started to grow so I moved into a commercial facility. We now have have several boutique retailers, not only in Middle TN, but scattered across the country. We have done wedding favors for brides in several states. We private label so that all of the guests receive a unique gift tailored to to the couples specifications.

What are all the different ways brides can use your products?

When approaching jams and jellies, you have to realize other than traditional uses (eg. PB&J), jams are an awesome base for fruit vinaigrettes. Raspberry jam with the addition of vinegar and olive oil -- you just made raspberry vinaigrette. If you take our mango pineapple jam, add a little rice vinegar and soy sauce, it is a great Asian inspired marinade.

What flavors or options do you offer?

We currently have 12 staple flavors and we are adding a couple salad dressings and barbecue sauces. Our regular flavors include: strawberry, blackberry, blueberry, mango pineapple, strawberry jalapeño, peach habanero, raspberry, raspberry jalapeño, cranberry marmalade, three pepper jelly, jalapeño pepper jelly and six pepper jelly.

Do you ship to different states?

We are licensed with the TN dept of agriculture and the FDA . We can ship anywhere in the US and abroad.
