Small Batch Kitchen, LLC was founded by Sheila Rhodes in 2014.
After my husband Jason, and I moved to Harleysville in 2009, we jumped into turning our semi-suburban acre into a self-sufficient homestead. After planting a large vegetable garden, I wanted to see if I could "put up" enough food to last the winter.
I canned salsa, tomatoes, pickles, and jams and was happy with the way the majority of the recipes turned out. I was disappointed in the flavor of the jams. They seemed overly sweet - with sugar masking the flavor of the fresh, sweet produce that I used during the height of the summer.
