So I just finished finished jarring a big batch of Bacon Jam. I intend to hand them out to family and friends over the holidays.
I got me to thinking. I really enjoy doing this and am considering picking this up as a hobby. Perhaps sale my wares over Facebook. I’ve done some preliminary research, and have found that all I need in the state of Texas is a food handlers permit (They cost a whopping $9 lol)
The thing is, that permit isn’t enough to make me feel comfortable selling my stuff*. What I’d really like to do is pay someone more knowledgeable to take a look at my operation to give pointers or at the very least, to make sure everything I’m doing is safe.
For example, I’m currently storing the jars of BJ in the fridge, just to be on the safe side. But is that even necessary?
So yeah, I’m not sure what kind of feedback I’m looking for here. I guess I’m just looking for advice to make me more comfortable in going into such a business.
Also, I’m not looking to make a huge profit from this either. If I can break even and occupy my time in a positive way, I’ll be happy.
- If I do this, I intend on making other stuff like jerky, and beer cheese.
