Sweet peppers and habanero peppers washed and ready to prep for making hot pepper jelly – YUM!
Amy cuts up the peppers to put into the food processer. Her kitchen is inspected by the NC
Department of Agriculture since she makes value-added products for sale to the public.
Amy fills sterilized jars with the finished and still-hot pepper jelly. Amy produces all kinds of value-added products from vegetables grown on her farm, including relishes, jams and jellies, pickles, and more.
