County Road Canning Award Winning Jelly Review and Giveaway
About the company:
Our story is truly the American Dream at it’s best. Four years ago with an abundant harvest of Green Tomatoes and Jalapenos from our private garden County Road Canning was born. Originally working under the cottage law our first two products, Jalapeno Jelly and ChowChow Relish, were created. We simply gave them as gifts to family and friends. Both were received well and soon people wanted to purchase them for their family and friends. Thus started our wonderful journey. We begin creating unique flavors that kept us different than the mainstream of Jelly being made. Every new product we made was met with great anticipation from our Customer base. We found a Commercial Kitchen, obtained our Texas Food Manufacturing License and began our business full time. We currently have 42 flavors including a new line of Grilling Glazes. We continually strive to produce new unique flavors for our customers. We offer both retail and wholesale for our products. We attend as many festivals, farmers markets, and craft fairs as possible including The Texas State Fair in the Go Texas General Store. We have 9 Texas State Fair Winners including our very first two products, Jalapeno Jelly and ChowChow Relish. Our company was chosen as a Martha Stewart American Made Program Finalist in 2014 and we are Proud members of GO TEXAN!
We use fresh ingredients from our private garden as well as local farmers. It’s important not only to keep the ingredients fresh but to utilize local businesses. All of our products are packaged in Mason Jars just like Grandma’s used. Our products range from traditional flavors such as Peach, Grape and Strawberry Fig to our line of Wine Jellies like Blackberry Merlot Jelly, Berry Sangria Jelly or Pear Moscato Jelly. We are proud of our very popular Spirits line including Apple Jack (Jack Daniels) Jelly, Orange Amaretto Jelly, Cherry Firebomb (Fireball Whiskey) Jelly and Texas Beer (Texas made Shiner Bock) Jelly. All of our products are labeled with nutrition facts, ingredients, serving suggestions and bar coded.
County Road Canning is truly a labor of love. We are blessed to have the opportunity to do what we love every day. Produce a great unique product and a brand that is growing from coast to coast. Our customers love our products and we will continue to create unique flavors with fresh ingredients, and a touch of Texas in each jar.
These jams are incredible! They are excellent in flavor and variety. My husband and I love trying new or unique flavors and all three of these fit the bill perfectly.
The Lavender Jelly
From the enclosed tag: Our beautiful Lavender Jelly will awaken your senses and delight your taste buds with pleasure!
This jelly was licking the spoon good! I could just eat it by the spoonful, right out of the jar.
The Bacon Jalapeno Jelly
From the enclosed tag: If you are a bacon lover you will love our Bacon Jalapeno Jelly. Made from scratch with jalapenos hand-picked from our private garden, this jelly has a wonderful jalapeno kick with a subtle bacon flavor.
This was like one big jalapeno bacon party in my mouth. Jalapeno and Bacon is such a wonderful flavor combination.
The Blackberry Merlot Wine Jelly
From the enclosed tag: Texas State Fair Award Winner! Our unique Blackberry Merlot Wine Jelly is a hit at any party, or a lovely gift for someone special. The combination of Merlot wine and fresh blackberries makes for a wonderfully smooth, delectable jelly.
Absolutely delicious! It is unlike any other jelly I’ve ever had.
These jellies are so creative. They are all splendid on toast, they made simple toast seem like dessert, this is how my husband and I first sampled them. We both loved the Lavender the best. We also had each flavor on biscuits the next morning with our breakfast and my favorite changed to the Bacon Jalapeno, his favorite remained Lavender. For dinner tonight I have put a roast in the slow cooker with what was left of the Blackberry Merlot Wine. Oh my goodness, we are in heaven from the aroma already. I just know it will be great as a glaze for meat.
We were pleasantly surprised at the apparent quality of these products. The ingredients were pure, the consistency is smooth and soft, the colors are beautiful and translucent, with lively vibrant flavors. You must taste it to really believe how good it is.
I love that these are made in the United States by normal people, instead of some huge corporation.
Country Road Canning has some of the best jelly I have ever tasted. They would make a Great gift!
