Blessitt one of many vendors featured at ‘Sights & Sounds’



In 2010 Blessitt won three blue ribbon awards at the Laurel County Fair for her jams and jellies and in 2011 she won six blue ribbon awards.

“I initially started with ‘sweet with some heat,’” Blessitt said.  “I had no idea that it would be that good. I had found some habanero recipes online and thought I would give it a try.  I tested it on my daughter, she’s a very picky eater, and after I saw her reach for some more, I knew I had something good.”

Blessitt says her spicy products sell faster than she can make them.

“I think people like the sweet and spicy taste,” Blessitt said.  “If you eat them with a chip or cracker, you get a combination of sweet, spicy and salty and people really like the combination.”

Blessitt’s jams and jellies have been shipped to all 50 states and even to the Middle East.
