Merchant Monday: The Dutch Kettle

As promised on Saturday, a tasty giveaway! 

In our interview, Brent said he knows how to make national award-winning peach salsa. Brent is co-owner of TDK or The Dutch Kettle, a producer of quality jams, salsas, and BBQ sauce. Even if you aren’t a fruit salsa person, there’s a lot more to entice you at the Dutch Kettle, as you can see on their website: The Dutch Kettle. And by a lot more, I mean a lot more. Bacon salsa. Black bean salsa (a personal favorite of mine). Cherry-jalapeno jam. Elderberry jelly. Jalapeno honey mustard (so good I had to give you a direct link). Hot raspberry BBQ sauce. Hickory BBQ sauce. 

I took a screen shot of their beautiful website in case you can’t follow the link for some reason:

The Dutch Kettle

I love how The Dutch Kettle website has the shipping costs clearly posted, because obviously mailing jars is a little tricky. 

Shipping: 1-4 jars – $16   |   5-8 jars – $8   |   9+ jars – FREE

Brent mentioned The Dutch Kettle has a three-jar gift pack with one jam, one salsa and one BBQ sauce. 

Today’s Giveaway

Ta-da! Just leave a comment, either here on the blog or on 500 Words by Katrina Facebook page, and you will be entered to win this gem. If you win, you get to  pick any three varieties that you wish. It doesn’t have to be one salsa, one jam and one BBQ sauce. 

Things to keep in mind: 

  • If you comment on the blog, please leave enough information so that I can find you. 
  • If you can’t think of anything to say, comment with HOT, MEDIUM, or MILD so we know your preference in salsa flavors. 
  • The drawing will be open TODAY ONLY, Monday, January 28, 2019.

Good luck! 

And be sure to keep TDK in mind the next time you get hungry for chips and salsa…The Dutch Kettle Website.

    • Katrina January 28, 2019 at 12:41 pm #

      Yes Doris, I am a third party buyer too. I often get them from the Baker’s Nook in Elkhart.

    This sounds amazing! I’ve been a fan of making lots of different kinds of salsa!

  20. Krista January 28, 2019 at 10:20 am #

    We love our salsas and dips. Medium or hot definitely!

  21. Christine Martin January 28, 2019 at 10:42 am #

    I love making “otherwise” things into “fruity things”, like lettuce salad for example. And fruited salsa definitely sounds like a prize-winner!
    More than that, Katrina, I am inspired by the way your delight in people keeps shining through your posts…!! I think that is one of the things that made Jesus so attractive when He was walking around on the earth. This character quality makes you attractive, Katrina, and keeps reminding me of Jesus!

    • Katrina January 28, 2019 at 12:39 pm #

      Thanks, Christine. I do appreciate the encouragement and the reminder of Jesus’ priorities. I’m afraid to say that I am FAR from his caliber. I do find people interesting, but I also find it hard to socialize at times. But I am encouraged by your comments. It is a good reminder that we have a perfect example to follow!

  22. Angie Berkshire January 28, 2019 at 10:42 am #

    I LOVE this giveaway!!!
    I love this company.
    And, the owners of this company… and their office manager… know where to find me. Wait… you do too!!! 🙂

    • Katrina January 28, 2019 at 12:37 pm #

      Thought you might enjoy it! Wouldn’t that be interesting if you would win? 😀

  48. Laura Martin January 28, 2019 at 12:38 pm #

    • Katrina January 28, 2019 at 2:24 pm #

      They are! I don’t think they have a retail store on site, but plenty of area stores carry their products.

  61. Rachel January 28, 2019 at 2:19 pm #

    I guess if they don’t ship to Canada on this give away, u could send my winning order to my sister Rosanna in the above comment and I’ll deal with her on wat we do with my winnings😝 (don’t be too worried; I’m not always the contest winner in giveaways 😜)

    • Katrina January 28, 2019 at 2:25 pm #

      You never know! She would probably be happy to take care of it for you. 😀

    Medium here. Next time I visit my big sis, Ida Mae, in IN, she’ll have to take me there!

    • Katrina January 28, 2019 at 3:55 pm #

      I don’t think they retail on site, but there are plenty of stores around that carry their products. They might give you a tour! 😀 Says the person with no say in the matter.

  73. Esther January 28, 2019 at 3:52 pm #

    I’m a food connoisseur along with most of the rest of my family. I love to try foods and experience them through my palette and discover award winning products! 😉

  77. Julia Schrock January 28, 2019 at 4:53 pm #

    TDK peach salsa is the best!

  78. Loveda Schrock January 28, 2019 at 4:58 pm #

    Their peach salsa is delici-o-sus! It was served at our son, Kendall’s wedding. Their BBQ sauce is lovely as well.

  79. Mary January 28, 2019 at 5:22 pm #

    I’d love to try their jams.

  80. Loretta Witmer January 28, 2019 at 6:14 pm #

    I never heard of this company. The products look amazing and the prices are very reasonable.

  81. Leah Escoto January 28, 2019 at 6:29 pm #

    Bacon, black bean, peach, they all sound yummy right now.

  82. Trish January 28, 2019 at 7:14 pm #

    You got me with ‘black bean salsa’ 😊
    Mild works for me!

  83. Jane Eby January 28, 2019 at 7:48 pm #

    Medium here! Their products look delicious!

  88. William January 28, 2019 at 9:58 pm #

    Brother William here, leaving a comment and feeling miserably cheap and pecuniary. I do have an actual comment, which makes me feel slightly better: your new blog format gets a huge a+! (And I’m a mild non-fruity salsa person…)

    • Katrina January 29, 2019 at 5:07 am #

      Wow! I feel honored! Thanks 😀 No reason to feel cheap!

  89. William January 28, 2019 at 10:06 pm #

    Brother William here, leaving a comment and feeling miserably cheap and pecuniary (and also oddly male… am I the only man with courage to enter??). I do have an actual comment though, which makes me feel a little better: I love your new blog format. (And I am a mild non-fruity salsa person…)

  90. Elaine January 28, 2019 at 10:11 pm #

    I love peach salsa!

  91. victoria January 28, 2019 at 10:14 pm #

    Quite a list of possibilities. I was mostly looking at the jams for sale. Was hoping for some rhubarb-raspberry. You often see rhubarb-strawberry but not with raspberry—-wonder why that would be? Maybe Brent knows?

    • Katrina January 29, 2019 at 5:08 am #

      Hmmm. I don’t know but it would be worth shooting them an email!

  92. Kerra January 28, 2019 at 10:25 pm #

    Yikes I almost missed this! Would love to win a nice sampling from TDK!

    • Katrina January 29, 2019 at 5:08 am #

      Looks like you slipped in at the 11th hour!

  93. William January 28, 2019 at 10:27 pm #

    Aaaaaaaaaa! My comment posted twice!! Aaaaaaaaaa! I hate the internet!! All tails between legs. Aaaaaa!

    • Katrina January 29, 2019 at 5:09 am #

      Stop worrying! That’s common. 😂

  94. Fern January 28, 2019 at 10:49 pm #

    I can say from experience TDK has some of the BEST salsa, BBQ and jams. (The other co-owner happens to be my nephew.

  95. Sheryl Zook January 28, 2019 at 11:07 pm #

    Thanks for entering my name😊

  96. Rosetta Byers January 28, 2019 at 11:50 pm #

    Ooh food! I seldom have fruity salsas so I’d love to try the peach. Sounds fun!
