Grandma D’s Preserves
Grandma D’s Preserves is all about homemade jams and salsas. The taste is out of this world! Owner Darice Watson uses only the highest quality ingredients. Her artisanal jams contain no artificial additives, preservatives, or artificial flavors. Best of all, each jar contains 40% less sugar than that of store-bought brands. Grandma D’s delicious apple sauce and giardiniera are community favorites at local fairs and markets.
Looking for a unique present for a loved one? If so, Grandma D’s jams make a great gift for anyone who loves the taste of fresh fruit. The jams are available in a variety of flavors and come in 4 oz. and 8 oz. sizes. You’ll love the chunky salsa bursting with garden-fresh goodness. The zesty flavors are certainly everything to write home about! Jam flavors include strawberry, raspberry, blueberry, orange marmalade, and raspberry-white chocolate. Are you a berry fan? If so, don’t miss the Very Berry jam, a combination of raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, and strawberry jams.
SaraBoo Creek is known for its custom woodcraft designs and quality craftsmanship. Owner Cindy Crawford initially sold her unique products at fairs and craft shows. As time progressed, however, she decided to open a studio space in Crest Hill. Today, Cindy offers workshops to help you design and create your own personalized wood art creations.
You can choose a wide range of colors and letters when designing your personalized gift item. Once you’ve made your choices, SaraBoo will assemble your masterpiece according to your specifications. You’ll walk out the door with a special one-of-a-kind gift everyone will admire. The shop also carries an assortment of household gifts and home decor, as well.
