 Joan and Ted Ballweg have spent years perfecting a business that involves personal passions. Ted the gardener preps the soil, selects the chili genetics and leads the production of organic chilies. These are grown in Savory Accent’s various gardens, in Verona, WI. Over 29 varieties of chilies will be available in season. Ted also grows carrots, onions, garlic, herbs, horseradish and various fruits as complimentary ingredients. Trained in France, Joan’s culinary passion takes these basic ingredients and creates innovative products that have a wonderful balance of flavor and spice. Finding the right combination of pungent chili spice and palate pleasing ingredients is an art she has mastered. Home grown and processed products include—Chili Oil, Chili Vinagraitte, Hot Sauce, Harissa Paste, Spicy BBQ Rub, Spicy Bloody Mary Seasoning, 7 Chili Seasoning, Habenero Seasoning, Chili Jam, and Raspberry Jalapeno Jam. The spicy gourmet—Joan, and the chili gardener—Ted, combine talents and the result is Savory Accents.
