Unopened products can be stored at room temperature in your cupboard or pantry for up to a year or two. Open products should be stored in the refrigerator and consumed within 6 months.
No, our products do not contain nuts, however they are produced in a facility that is not nut free.
All our products are made from fresh ingredients and in small batches, so not every batch will be the same. We buy from small local growers, and crops are always subject to the weather. Some tomatoes or peppers, might be deeper in colour than others, just as some jalapenos might be hotter. But generally speaking, the taste of the products should be much the same.
We use Canola Oil because it is a tasteless versatile oil, with a better health proposition than similar oils. Canola Oil is recognized by many professional health organizations worldwide and allows us to keep our products very low in saturated fat content. From our research, Canola Oil is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids and has been shown in many clinical trials to lower LDL cholesterol levels (the type associated with coronary heart disease), as well as total cholesterol.
We are not a certified gluten free facility, however many of our products are gluten free. We do use things like beer, soy sauce and in some of our products, so sure to read the ingredient list which is available on the side of each product, and also on each product page in our online shop.
Our fruits, berries and veggies are harvested from small, local growers in the Okanagan Valley who share our pursuit for quality. They may not all be certified organic but they practice good farming methods and they pick “fresh” and “ripe” ensuring quality in our jars.
We are located in Kelowna, BC, the heart of the Okanagan Valley. Known for our lush-orchards and sprawling vineyards nestled among clear blue lakes and sun-dappled hills. The Okanagan Valley is home to some of Canada’s best fruits and vegetables.
