We met 14-year-old Logan Gonzales at a local Farmer’s Market. Impressed that he had started a business at such a young age, we stopped for a chat. Later, we posted the following article in Issue #4 of the EDEN Barter Garden Newsletter on March 10, 2017.
Ever since I was a young boy I can remember my father making salsa. It took him years of trial and error to get it just right, but he finally perfected the recipe while stationed in Guam for the US Navy. He made it with care every time, and always from the freshest ingredients. Our family would eat anything, as long as it had a touch of Dad’s salsa in it, or on it! Growing up we always had fresh salsa to enjoy and share with our friends and family. His inspiration and passion probably had a lot to do with his own childhood in Southern California, but I think he mainly did it because his salsa made people happy. My Dad taught me to make his fresh homemade salsa as soon as I was tall enough to reach the counter, and I’ve been making it ever since.
