Hello and Welcome!!!

We started BenOoZa as a compilation of our names and talents. My name is Robin Benson and my passion is food and canning, I'm the "Ben" in BenOoZa.
My daughter Lorri's talents are crochet and art, she's the the "Oo" in BenOoZa.
My youngest daughter Veronica's love is creating art and video game design and development, she's the "Za" in BenOoZa.
Now that we're all grown and all that, we all have different last names and BenOoZa was the easiest way to tie us and all our talent together. That's the short version on how BenOoZa was created, and what we do.
We also all live in different places, and that's another story in and of itself!
In my picture, you'll notice I'm standing in front of my hot dog stand at an event here in New Mexico. The hot dog cart idea came as the result of wanting people to try GadZuke's (the relish we sell here on ETSY.) It's so yummy that i just knew if people tried it, they'd be back for more, and sure enough I was right! So part time I sell hot dogs, and not just any hot dogs either... these are the best quarter pound all beef hot dogs (with all the trimmings) in all of the land... i even sell my version of a Chicago dog right here in New Mexico, and GadZuke's of course! Local people know my hot dogs, and my relish, jam, and salsa and they keep coming back for more, which has been a true inspiration. Hopefully you will enjoy it and keep coming back too!
About the canning...
Our canning is done in one of two commercial kitchens. The first is a commercial kitchen that has been inspected and approved by the New Mexico Department of Environment. The second is my sister's commercial kitchen that has been inspected and approved by Panhandle Health Department in Idaho.
I was educated in a wide variety of canning techniques through New Mexico State University Better Process Control and hold certification that satisfies FDA's 21CFR 108.25(f), 108.35(g), 113.10, and 114.10. We adhere strictly to those standards and critical control points that have been developed.
We procure as much of our produce locally as possible, and do our best to obtain organic veggies and fruits while still maintaining the high standards we hold. We try our best to support our local business and community first. We also are mindful of environment and recycle and go green as much as possible.
If you notice, the first ingredient we put in all our canned goods is Love. That is the by far the most important ingredient of all. It is our belief that if we can't do this with love and joy, we need to not do this... we need to do something else. Follow our passion first and the rest will come.
Thanks for checking out our store and our Bio. Our hope is that as we offer more items you will continue to check back. Thanks, and happy shopping on ETSY!
