Discover the Difference Fresh, Natural Ingredients Can Make!

Fresh - Locally Sourced - Delicious

At Paula’s Pepper Jelly, we are proud to offer all-natural products with 100% organic ingredients! Many of the ingredients that we use in our pepper jelly and our other great products are grown by local farmers in Washington and throughout the Pacific Northwest. We believe that the best natural ingredients make for the best pepper jelly. Keep reading to learn more about the fresh ingredients we use in our pepper jelly, marinade sauce, and other great gourmet offerings.

The Pacific Northwest Region

Paula’s Pepper Jelly is based out of Monroe, Washington. In order to create the freshest, best tasting products, we’ve made every effort to reduce the distance between the farm to your table. Because we source our natural ingredients locally, your pepper jelly and other Paula’s products are much fresher and more flavorful. Unfortunately, many of our competitors are not even using organic ingredients, let alone sourcing them from local farmers in their region. It’s this attention to detail and commitment to all-natural ingredients that set our products at Paula’s Pepper Jelly apart from the rest.

Some examples of our locally sourced, natural ingredients include but are not limited to:


from Wenatchee, Washington

The apricots used in Paula’s Apricot & Ginger Pepper Jelly come straight from nearby farms in Wenatchee, Washington.

2009 Scovie Award winner, Paula’s Pacific NW Marionberry Pepper Jelly, only uses marionberry grown right here in the Pacific Northwest region. For those of you unfamiliar with marionberry, it has a strong smell and taste similar to blackberries. This is because marionberry is a cross between Chehalem and Olallieberry, which are both crosses of two other types of blackberries themselves.

Paula’s Red Raspberry Pepper Jelly uses all-natural, organic raspberries grown in, you guessed it — the Pacific Northwest region.

Paula’s Wild Blue Huckleberry Pepper Jelly is the 2009 Scovie Award winner runner up — and it’s easy to taste why. We use hand-picked, wild blue huckleberries from right down the road in the Pacific Northwest.

Cream Cheese

And Crackers

Perhaps the most common use of pepper jelly, though, is for charcuterie boards. Pepper jelly pairs perfectly with cream cheese and crackers for a tasty, one-of-a-kind appetizer. Nearly all of our organic jelly at Paula’s Pepper Jelly goes well on charcuterie boards. But one pepper jelly that we love of cream cheese is Paula’s Bacon & Shallot Pepper Jelly.




The peanut butter and jelly sandwich is an old American classic. But you haven’t lived until you’ve tried a PB&J with one of our Paula’s Pepper Jelly as the J. If you are looking for something more traditional, sweet, and flavorful, try Paula’s Strawberry Pepper Jelly. While fresh bell peppers are one of the ingredients, it has a very mild spice and tastes very similar to traditional jams and jellies — but better!

If you are feeling adventurous, try something like Paula’s Red Raspberry Pepper Jelly for your PB&J. It has a bold, spicy and sweet flavor that will introduce you to flavor combinations you may have never dreamed of!




Looking for a new flavor to add to your grilling repertoire? Pepper jelly is the perfect solution. Pepper jelly creates a unique sweet and spicy flavoring to grilled meats that can be just the thing your BBQed meats were missing. If you’re grilling light meats like chicken, pork, or fish, try Paula’s Apricot & Ginger Pepper Jelly — you’ll be glad you did.


Really Make a Difference?

You bet it does! The main difference between organic produce over traditional produce is how they are grown. Using organic produce is considered a more natural ingredient because when they are grown, there are no pesticides or chemicals used throughout the growing process. Pesticides and other chemicals used during farming can make their way into the food and end up being harmful to both humans and the environment. Due to the lack of pesticides, hormones, and other chemicals that can sometimes make farming easier, extra labor is required for organic products. This, in turn, can increase the price of organic products slightly over conventionally grown products and ingredients. However, in our humble opinion, the environmental and health benefits you get from using organic products and ingredients are well worth paying a little bit extra.
