One of the reasons I love exploring farmer’s markets most is to find unique, hand crafted products, I can’t get anywhere else! It’s exactly why the Undiscovered Kitchen team seeks out the MOST interesting people and products – so that YOU can discover the most unique products across the country! You can imagine just how excited I was to connect with the fabulous Wendy Read, founder of Sunchowder’s Emporia based in Longwood, Florida.
Sunchowder’s Emporia makes the MOST UNIQUE and delicious line of artisan jams, spreads, chutneys and pickles including:
- Pickled Lemon Basil Blueberries
- Fresh Florida Mango Lime & Tequila Jam Preserves
- Best Selling: Locally Grown Cowboy Candy Jalapeños!
- Tahitian Vanilla & Jim Beam Bourbon Extract
… just to name a few
Wendy pairs fresh fruits and vegetables with captivating flavors like boiled cider syrup from a 100 year old Vermont press, Hawaiian crystallized ginger, the finest quaity vinegars and spirits, island Madagascar vanilla beans, local honey sourced from Geneva Florida, and both Callebaut and Valrhona bittersweet chocolates, just to name a few.
WHY SUNCHOWDER’S EMPORIA ROCKS!
All Sunchowder’s Emporia jams and fruit butters are processed in small batches, never using corn syrup, pectin, preservatives or colors. Because of this commitment, their fruit and vegetable jams take longer to produce than store-bought jams (because commercial pectin is not added to form the gel).
All of the fruits and vegetables are cut by hand using only the freshest and locally sourced ingredients to ensure the highest quality products. Wendy also uses French cooking methods to coax out the luscious flavors of the berries, stone fruits and vegetables!
