About Brandi's Salsa

Made with Love 

 

:  About 10 years ago, my mother-in-law gave me my first canner, that summer I canned everything I could get my hands on, dills, carrots, peaches, jams, etc.  I had discovered not just a hobby but my passion! 

It wasn’t long after I started this newly found passion that an old neighbor that gave me my first jar of homemade salsa, it was excellent!  I got her recipe, but I wanted more spice.  I started looking at and comparing many different recipes, I took ideas from several of them and came up with recipes that I could call my own. Over the years I have made modifications to make Brandi’s Salsa what it is today!

I have been a housewife for 17 years, with my husband having a good career in the oilfield I was blessed to be able to stay home during the summers to perfect my recipes and can my salsa.  Over the years we have given many jars away as gifts to friends & family and I always pack a few jars when we travel, just in case we needed a gift that comes from the heart.  I knew my salsa was good because it always got rave reviews, I remember once giving my father-in-law a jar one summer, when he ran out he asked if I would sell him some more.  This was the moment I got the idea that I should sell my salsa.

My husband was laid off from his job this spring as a result of the downturn in the oil patch.  With this and Covid19, we were not sure how we were going to makes ends meet and the idea that was planted in my head years ago came rushing back to me.  I started making my salsa and selling it from my kitchen, mostly to our friends and family.  I realized that I really had something so I rented a government approved kitchen and started making more and selling it at markets, people loved it and sales were amazing.  With help from family and friends, I took all the necessary steps to be able to sell my salsa anywhere.  This is a brand new, homegrown business with amazing products which are being sold in stores and markets, the next logical step for us is selling through this online platform.
