Savory Accents

Verona, Wisconsin

Joan and Ted Ballweg have spent years perfecting a business that involves personal passions.

Ted is the gardener and it is his job to prep the soil, select chili genetics, and lead the production of a wide selection of organic chili varieties, spanning from mild Anaheim to zesty Chichen Itza Habenero. Savory Accents' gardens in Verona, WI, feature seeds that originate from many diverse global cultures - Aji from Peru, Bulgarian Carrots, Fatali from Africa, Jolokia from India, Chinese Lanterns, Bolivian Reds, Kung Pao Cayennes, Thai Hots, Japanese Shishito... and many more each season! This varied collection of capsaicin-producing genetics is the basis of all of the unique spicy flavors found in Savory Accents' products. Ted also grows carrots, onions, garlic, herbs, horseradish and various fruits as complimentary ingredients.

Joan's culinary passion takes these naturally grown peppers and creates innovative products that strike a perfect balance of flavor and heat. Finding the right combination of pungent chili spice and palate-pleasing ingredients is a true art form - and she has mastered it. Like celebrated chef Julia Child, Joan learned many creative culinary techniques in France.

Joan, the spicy gourmet, and Ted, the chili gardener, combine their unique talents to form Savory Accents. They strive to bring their garden, kitchen and passion to you, the customer.
