Only the Best of the Best
By: Rebecca Garoutte (Mar 16, 2010)

Our family has enjoyed a wide range of jelly and chutney from Meadowlark Acres. Everything Suzanne does, she does with excellence and artistry! Whether you are purchasing for yourself or for giftgiving, you can always rest assured that she will have something truly unique and of the highest quality. Her sense of culinary adventure makes every variety of jelly or chutney she offers a true treat. Kuddos Suzanne!

Suzanne creates amazing jellies in combinations that are incredible! It is so nice to have a local artisan that is willing to experiment with foods in this way. Her excitement and involvement in creating food is contagious! We look forward to her breads and jellies evolving....only if we can be the testers!

the BEST!

You have got to try 'em, you will LOVE 'em. We do. This "stuff" is truly TOP SHELF


You won't be sorry!

Love the pepper jelly layered over cream cheese, then smeared on a favorite cracker. Easy-to-make treat with a great flavor.

Pepper Jelly BBQ sauce
By: (Jul 22, 2009)

I always look forward to Suzanne's pepper jelly! I love it on cream cheese and crackers, but most especially I love adding it to my homemade BBQ sauce, everyone wants my secret recipe!



Suzanne's Newest Jellies!
By: Pamela Hayden (Jul 18, 2009)

I am so excited I get to be the first to talk about Suzanne's newest jelly creations! The SWEET PURPLE BASIL CHARDONNAY has a smooth and delicate flavor and is delightful over a block of cream cheese served on water crackers. I am going to try this one with cream cheese on crustless white bread and thinly sliced cucumber for summer sandwiches. Next is the CHARDONNAY AND LEMON BASIL. This one has the stronger basil taste with just a hint of lemon for balance. Excellent just served on sliced baguette for a quick snack, though I am also going to try it over pork roast as a glaze. Then the LEMON BASIL AND DILL . This one was my favorite if I had to choose a favorite. It has a strong citrus kick and the dill made it doubly so. Since I love tart foods, this one was made for me! All of the three jellies are so original and delicious, I would recommend them to all. I might also add for wine lovers, the two with chardonnay do have the wonderful wine flavor and they smell heavenly. Suzanne got it just right!

Just enough sweet, just enough spicy. Wonderful! Once I start eating it, I can't stop!

Memories in a jar
By: Teresa Stohs (Jul 16, 2009)

My father was not a cook or a gardener. His one specialty was spicy mustard. We used to eat it on sandwiches--but my father even put it on his eggs. That is a sweet memory for me. The first time I tasted Suzanne's mustard I was caught in time. Just like my father's (maybe even a little better). Knowing Suzanne, who is one of the most delightful people I have ever met, I now have this wonderful picture in my mind of the way she lovingly and caringly prepares all of her products. Make a new memory for yourself and try her homemade creations


By: Sara Valins (Jul 16, 2009)

Meadowlark jams and jellies and absolutely the best---delicious. What a treat to serve to guests. The pepper jelly was a BIG HIT at my last party...thanks for the talent in making these wonderful jams and jellys.

Not to Miss
By: Sheila Dressman (Jul 15, 2009)

It's all good - fresh, wholesome, delicious. The best to share with family and friends. The hot pepper jelly with cheese and bread is a real crowd pleaser. The new basil jelly is a taste sensation! Can't wait to see what they do next.

By: Don Schreiner (Jul 15, 2009)

Want to taste the splendor of summer deep into winter? It's like a garden in a jar - all so fresh tasting and colorful! There's nothing like it in the grocery store, or anywhere I've seen.






By: Duane Daugherty (Mar 25, 2010)

Everything is out of this world, from the artisan breads to the specialty crackers to the amazing jellies. All with a smile, and a great appreciation for other local artisans. I can't get enough.

Meadowlark Acres is the BOMB!
By: Nancy Burchett (Mar 10, 2010)

I met Suzanne last summer at a Farmer's Market. She had tastings of her bread and jellies and they were incredible! I have a tough time deciding which flavor I want today. Each one is bursting with flavor, and the way she combines fruits with peppers is amazing. I have also featured her breads and jellies at Factory Direct Appliance and Nebraska Furniture Mart while I demonstrate Dacor appliances. Customers are always amazed at the flavor combinations, and many have become customers of Meadowlark Acres themselves. If you haven't tried Meadowlark Acres, you are in for a treat!

Alabama Wild Pepper Jelly
By: BubbaJohn Seafood (Mar 2, 2010)

Meadowlark Acres makes a Pepper Jelly that is perfect with BubbaJohn's Shrimp! I highly encourage you to try and Buy to experiment for yourself . You won't regret it and that is only one in her long line of Breads Jellies, Sundries! 


Best in Town!
By: Kerry Moon (Mar 2, 2010)

I have just met Suzanne and I am thrilled to be able to enjoy her declicious recipes. She is so creative and everything is so wonderful. Just want more all the time. So glad my son, Kris, got me hooked up with her. Who knew that a guy in NYC at the James Beard Foundation would hook his mom up with this fantastic lady right here in KC? Thanks Kris, and thanks Suzanne!

The Best Stuff on Earth!
By: Nancy Burchett (Oct 13, 2009)

I have become addicted to Meadowlake Acres pepper jellies. My current favorite is the Rainbow Hot Pepper Zucchini Jelly. My favorite way to enjoy it: Toasted cheese sandwich with the jelly for breakfast!

Multi-purpose yumminess!
By: John Escalada (Jul 24, 2009)

Sure, it's pure heaven to spread Meadowlark Acres purple basil jelly on bread, bagels or english muffins, but try it as an after glaze on pork or roasted chicken! YUM!

Another yummy trick - Add Meadowlark Acres Sweet and Spicy Hot Pepper Mustard to your basic vinaigrette dressing.

It's easy to love it as is or to get creative with it! 



Jellies to fight over
By: Nola Devitt (Jul 17, 2009)

I recently did a taste test of 5 different Meadowlark Acres jellies and spreads, and it was tough to pick a favorite. Each one pairs perfectly with something different, so I always want them all! Whenever I serve them to friends, they beg me for some to take home. My alltime favorite, though, has to be the Pepper Jelly served with cheddar cheese!

By: Cheri Deverey (Jul 16, 2009)

I love this pepper jelly! It's addictive with a unique flavor and has the right amount of spice. The only problem is I can't stop eating it once I start.

By: vida bikales (Jul 16, 2009)

Great to look at, great to give as gifts but mostly, just great to eat!

Pepper Jelly
By: Adam Elliott (Jul 16, 2009)

I've had the good fortune to have Suzanne's pepper jelly the last 5-6 years.

The first time I had it, it was better than anything I had tried like it before. Yet, she continually makes it better--most recently with the multi-colored peppers, too.

If I had a business, I would offer this product to everyone! It truly is the best of its kind, and I've learned that anything done by Suzanne is always first-class, high quality, and done well!

By: Nils Ekstrom (Jul 16, 2009)

Being raised on a farm, home made jams, jellies, preserves were always available. This jelly reminds me of when true ingredients and not fillers really do produce a better product! The pepper jelly has so many uses it's not meant to be just at the breakfast table!

Hot Pepper Jelly
By: Larry Dingman (Jul 15, 2009)

I served this to guests at brunch and got more positive comments than I got over the entrees I'd worked very hard on. It's unique, with just a bit of fire.

Hot Pepper Jelly
By: Michele Craig (Jul 15, 2009)

Meadowlark Acres Hot Pepper Jelly is a staple everyone should keep in their pantry. It is wonderful with cheese and crackers. Always great to have on hand when last minute guests stop by. I also enjoy it with brie and homemade bread.

If you want to kick up grilled cheese a few notches, add it to your sandwich. Wow.
