Who is behind the “Sweet Heat” brand?

Nolan is the creator of SWEET HEAT JAM and has built a microenterprise as a result! He, along with 4 other full-time employees, wash, cut and measure every ingredient, and pour every jar of jam. In addition, a culinary program was started to help other young adults with intellectual disabilities have the experience of learning the workings of a jam company. From its humble beginnings, the team now produces over 5,000 jars of jam a year. In 2014, Sweet Heat Jam was a finalist in the HEB Quest for Texas Best and in 2016 Nolan was selected as one of the Top Ten People in Katy, Texas.

I’m allergic to nuts.  Do any of your jams contain nuts?

Sweet Heat Jams do not contain any nut products and are created in a commercial kitchen that is used only for our jams, making it free from nuts, flour and meats.


What does it mean that your jams are made in “small batches”?
