Smart Alex, samples some berries!

Introducing “Smart” Alex, the creator and concocter behind Smart Alex Jams.  We all know that great handmade businesses often come from a passionate, creative person doing something that very labor intensive and very delicious for years and years.  And all those years they hear people telling them “This is so good, you should sell it!”  That’s exactly the story behind the Jams at Smart Alex, and we are really looking forward to picking up a jar of our own at The Big Chill on Sunday, December 2nd!

Blueberry Spice Jam by Smart Alex Jams

With flavors like Ginger Peach, Crabapple  Jelly, Blueberry Spice, Raspberry Mango, Cranberry Orange Zest, Christmas Jam and more available there’s gonna be a little something for everyone.  We hope she brings tasters!

Smart Alex!
