SPINK COUNTY (KSFY) - Homemade jams, jellies, syrups, pickles and salsa, the options are nearly endless when it comes to Char's Kitchen. Char Barrie's place of work is on a farm in rural Spink County. She has been testing out jam recipes for more than 20 years.
People can visit her jelly house just west of Turton. Otherwise, her products can be found in numerous stores throughout the state and online. She has 23 different flavors of jelly, seven flavors of syrup two flavors of salsa, the list goes on.
"Sometimes I call her a workaholic," her husband Rolland said.
Rolland helps her pick a lot of the fruits and vegetables she uses in her jams and jellies. This is something that sets her apart from the competition.
"We advertise 'all natural' on the back of our jars, and when I started doing this, people would tell me 'you can do that in bigger batches,' but I said 'I don't want to lose that Grandma flavor,'" she said.
Another special touch is her homeade design. Her Christmas displays all have fabric designs fashioned at her kitchen.
"When a farmer says, he has a harder time quitting than starting, I can understand that now, because it gives you a sense of pride," she said.
