“At the end of the day it’s not about what you have or even what you accomplished, it’s about who you’ve lifted up, who you’ve made better. It’s about what you’ve given back.”
All of Potlicker started with the blog. It began as a creative outlet in 2009, became a canning addiction, and evolved into a small business. After almost 10 years of manufacturing thousands of jars a week in my Vermont canning kitchen, I get a lot of help stirring the pot. Current production locations include Florida & Vermont.
Recipes have been developed in my kitchen, the flavors inspired by the ingredients around me, and my sweet savory preference. Preserves for use with cheese & charcuterie, cooking & baking, sandwiches & sauces.
I am a dedicated yogi (RYT fall 2023) and love to be outdoors. As a garden goddess & kitchen witch I fill my time with growing things (plants, ideas, skills) and learning how to use them. Forever a hobbyist photographer, you can find me on instagram the most.
Follow my IG @Ms.NancyJean. @PotlickerKitchen will remain dedicated to jam & things sticky.
