Our Story

Jay-and-Jalapeno-Jelly-for-Home-Page

Growing up in Texas, jalapenos were a way of life. My Dad would have them with every meal. He would buy whole pickled jalapenos by the gallon and keep them in the fridge in a plastic container until time to eat. So, kids do what their parents do and in this case it was eat jalapenos and enjoy them. I love peppers and especially jalapenos. This love led me to make jalapeno products for you.

In the summer of 2011, my good friend and Church chef, Phil, came to me with a problem. He grew a beautiful back yard garden full of jalapenos and was trying to figure out what to do with them. I suggested we use them to our strength and Phil made pepper jelly and I made salsa. We handmade 350 jars that summer had them for sale and they were all gone by Christmas time.

In 2012, Phil’s garden had even more jalapenos and we decided to make about 3,500 jars of jelly and salsa and you got it, we sold it all! Phil would always say, “Our products will sell themselves” and they really have. Now it was time to look to our next crop.

So, 2013 got here and my good friend, Skidmore, gave us a plot of land up in Meridianville, Al, and after a healthy dose of chicken litter in the soil, Phil grew some really hot jalapenos. It was time to take our products to the next level. Phil decided to concentrate on growing the peppers and Van came out of retirement to help me out and boy has he. Our goal this year is to make 10,000 jars.
