Bread and Jam

My friend Janet is always introducing me to some really cool new foods and products that would otherwise go unnoticed by me.  The latest product she turned me on to is  Sweet Heat Jams by The Sweet Heat Jam Company.    The Sweet Heat Jam Company was created in 2014 by a young entrepreneur named Nolan Stilwell.  Nolan is a Texas native who is a young culinary artist and gardener, and he just also happens to have Downs Syndrome.  Nolan has created his Company Sweet Heat Jam Company with the help of his friends and family to showcase his love for growing peppers and for cooking.  He also helps his community, and the company hires other young adults who have intellectual and/or physical disabilities.  The jams are created by using fresh fruits and peppers, many of which are grown by Nolan himself.  Currently, there are 13 different varieties of jams, plus one new addition of a Sweet Heat Mustard.

I ordered 3 of the jams plus the mustard.  I ordered the peach, the blueberry and the drunken pepper jams.


So far, the only one I have tried is the drunken pepper, but if this is a good indicator, then I have no doubt the others will be just as good.


I thought the drunken pepper would go nicely with the olive bread too, since olives and peppers are a great combination any way.  It does too.  It makes for a very interesting combination, with the sweet, slightly hot mixed together with the warm olive bread.  YUM.


Walk on the wild side a bit, and give Sweet Heat Jam Company a try.  They are the jams with attitude, and Nolan Stilwell is the Jam Man.  You can find Sweet Heat Jam Company at,, find them on Facebook or call the Jam Hotline at (281) 797-7076.
