THIS WEEK'S ADDITIONAL VENDORS
Jamboleo jams, jellies, and marmalades are handcrafted in batches of 8–10 jars at a time in a permitted residential kitchen. Two essential flavors meet in every jar — one fruit, and one herb or spice. Our recipes feature a short ingredient list and no added pectin. The result is one irresistible blended flavor that is good enough to eat with a spoon!
Sa's Homestyle is the maker of Sa's Sweet and Spicy Sauce. Our magical sauces enhance the taste of anything they're put on. Versatile, it can be used as a dipping/finishing sauce, marinade, BBQ sauce/additive, or cooking ingredient. We offer the following varieties: X-Hot, Hot, Mild, and Hot and X-Hot with Apple Cider Vinegar. These sauces have some warmth, but even our spiciest variety will not set your mouth on fire!
Pre-order Information: Please send your order by email to SasHomestyle@gmail.com or by text to 508.397.0961.
