About Mrs. G’s Hot Pepper Jellies
Mrs. G’s began one Christmas, 20 years ago, when Cindy Greaver had more time than money to invest in holiday gifts for family and friends, so she made several batches of hot pepper jelly. Soon everyone was asking for more!
Mrs. G’s is now in its 4th year of business. And while the business has grown substantially; the products haven’t lost the small batch charm that keeps fans coming back for more.
Mrs. G’s remains dedicated to producing hot pepper jellies with only the freshest non-GMO ingredients, in a local FDA-certified kitchen to ensure excellence in taste and quality. Flavors include: Ja-Ha, Jalapeno Garlic Lime, Mango Ginger Habanero, and Peach Habanero.
Mrs. G’s Jellies are sourced locally, and are made and packaged in Southern California. Jellies are available at several retail locations across southern California, online and at local farmers’ markets where Cindy and her family are so happy to meet their loyal customers. Look for great recipes here!
Cindy Greaver aka Mrs. G
Cindy Greaver, the “Mrs. G” behind Mrs. G’s, never thought she’d one day launch a gourmet food business. With a degree from Pepperdine University in Psychology and Sociology, she got her early work experience from a variety of positions in corporate America and later helped her husband with the administrative side of his business.
Cindy took great joy in supporting the family business while homeschooling her two children for 10 years. When the kids grew up, Cindy looked to fill her extra time with a new side venture. But what would that be? Piano lessons? No. After school tutoring? No.
The only real skill she had in terms of making a product, she deduced, was making hot pepper jelly. After sharing the idea with some friends, they all told her it was too good NOT to share with everyone. And the business was born.
Favorite Mrs. G’s hot pepper jelly flavor:
I like each of them on different things, but when I tasted Jalapeno Garlic Lime for the first time I grabbed a spoon and ate half the jar.
Butternut squash recipe with either Mango Ginger Habanero or Ja-Ha.
Unexpected way to use Mrs. G’s jellies:
PB&J with the “J” being Jalapeno Garlic Lime. Customers love it!
What I like best about working at farmers’ markets:
Meeting people…I really enjoy interacting with customers and vendors at the market. It’s like a “family.”
