Meet the Artisan

Sandy Hood

Sannie Mae’s Heirloom Foods comes from four generations. Generations of Hood’s family have lived and worked in Elkmont and Tremont, Tennessee over the years. She has recipes dating back to her great-grandmother. Growing up, they learned the importance of growing and producing their own foods.

“We gardened,” Hood said. “It was the way of life for us and I still do a lot of that today.”

Sannie Mae Heirloom Foods Chow-ChowHood came across an old recipe for hot chow-chow that was in her great grandmother’s handwriting. She knew that this among others were original recipes created by her family members themselves. It was time to share these with others.

“I started giving samples out to my family and friends and they kept saying, ‘You should do this.’” In January of 2011, Hood gained her official first customer by selling her one and only product at the time, her great grandmother’s famous chow-chow.

Now, years later, the chow-chow is Hood’s best selling product.
