Fireweed Jelly with Shelley Bauman-Shantz

Shelley Bauman-Shantz runs a small farm with her husband, Aaron, and her children. At her booth at the Bouctouche Farmers Market her Fireweed jelly caught our eye. Fireweed is a flower that comes up in abandoned fields and sometimes where there’s been a fire. We got her to walk us through her whole process for making the jelly. 

Thank you to New Brunswick Government’s Wellness Movement for a Community Food Action grant and to Pays de Cocagne Sustainable Development Group (GDDPC) for their support.
