Milton jelly business stopped making jelly due to impacts of COVID-19, they say they can’t find jelly jars

MILTON, Del.- In Milton, a farmers market and retail store that relies on their jelly business said that as of Thursday they will have to stop making jelly because they can’t find the jars to put them in.

The owner of Backyard Jams and Jellies, Krista Scudlark, said the pandemic has made jars hard to get.

She said the company she normally gets them from said they have run out right now.

She even said places like Walmart and Ace Hardware don’t have any.

Scudlark added to continue to serve the community with jelly, community support is needed something that people are already starting to do.

“It’s very important, it’s nice if anyone wants to recycle their jelly jars with me, I will take them and it’s just nice that people are looking for me you know it’s just a nice community,” Krista Scudlark, owner of Backyard Jams and Jellies, said.

Scudlark said if you want to recycle any of your jelly and canning jars you can drop them off at the Historical Lewes Farmers Market on Saturday mornings from 8 to 12.

You can also drop them off at the grocery store, Lewes Gourmet.
