Made in the heart of Austin since 1994, Austin Slow Burn offers a “national-award winning line of gourmet fiery foods,” specializing in a variety of quesos, salsas, jams, pasta sauce and jerk marinade. They focus on the flavor and quality of the products with the added bonus of a slow heat. Only quality ingredients are used and all recipes are made in small batches, ensuring the freshness. They started out as a Christmas gift when “Jill and Kevin Lewis” make jars of homemade salsa to hand out to friends at the holidays. It was such a hit that the recipients urged them to start selling it. The “Salsa con Habanero” became their first product. From there the Jerk Marinade and Habanero Jelly came along and after some years of experimentation the rest of their line came about.
