Meet the Owner/ Condiment Maker Kelly Schexnaildre:
I am a southern girl from the gulf coast of Louisiana. I started cooking at 8 years of age; I have always had a passion for exceptional food, and all the experience and community it offers. I relocated to Denver, Colorado in May 2010 ready to embark on a new adventure and chapter in my life. I am an avid gardener who uses fresh, organic, and local ingredients in all my dishes whenever possible. I started making condiments about 6 years ago, and through experimentation and creativity, discovered that I love it. My idea for Merfs Condiments came to fruition in January 2014, and I am intent on creating recipes for condiments that will enhance anyone’s food experience.
How did I get into making hot sauce?
A buddy of mine gave me a half bushel of peaches five summers ago, and I didn’t want to make preserves, pie, cobbler, or any other traditional peach items. I made peach habanero hot sauce with carrots, lemon juice, white vinegar, sugar, and salt and a star was born! I had friends that couldn’t get enough, and family members that wanted it for Christmas gifts; I soon realized that my hobby was both too expensive and too lucrative a talent to be wasted. I started Merfs Condiments instead of going to graduate school or waiting tables forever, and here we are 4 years later!
Hi, I am Murphy.
I am a basset hound that’s got a big attitude and eats lots of cookies. I am thrilled to be the representative for Merfs Condiments, both in name and shape! I enjoy playing with my dog sister, Erin, following my mom around the house, and being silly. I live in South Louisiana with my parents, and I am quirky and cute.
Shout Outs for Merfs!
We tried your Hand Grenade siracha today at Uno Mas and absolutely LOVED it! How can we order more?
My name is Pepper. My mom is in love with your salsa. My mom and I work at the same place. Yesterday, I made her call in sick today so we could hop on a plane from Phoenix to come buy your salsa in person. Sounds weird, I know. She works a lot and never takes vacation, so I thought it would be fun. I also realize that we could buy it on Amazon or something. I just figured this would be a lot more fun! So thank you for giving us a reason to play hookie, and eat for one day :):)
Just a fan writing to tell you that our family discovered Merf’s this past year and think you make some EXCELLENT products. Really. Our favorites are Electric Lime, Beer Mustard, and the Yellow Mustard. We bought the Yellow Mustard at Savory in Lowry and it was an instant hit! (You can see where this email is going…) We have used it on burgers, hot dogs, sausages, and it makes the BEST Cuban Sandwiches. My mother-in-law bought a bottle to take back home to Tampa, FL - and packed it in her carry-on bag. When the TSA confiscated it, she actually cried!
