In the humble kitchen where family memories are forged, Moon Peppers came to life through a simple yet profound realization. One evening, while savoring a meal, my husband Khai and I felt a subtle absence—a missing warmth and zest. It was then that the cherished pickled memories of our grandmothers surfaced, featuring tangy mustard greens, crisp carrots, delicate cauliflower, and savory garlic. Yet, a gap remained; we had never ventured into the world of spicy pickles.
In 2018, armed with our grandmothers' timeless teachings, we set out to infuse tradition with a touch of warmth. Countless brine experiments and shared family meals later, we discovered the perfect balance—a hint of heat that became our signature touch. To our surprise, our pickled peppers resonated with family and friends, finding a special place among those who relished the kick of spice.
Our journey took a more tangible turn in March 2020, during a period of uncertainty. Khai, in the tech world, and myself, with 18 years in banking, yearned for more time with our young son, Luke. In February 2021, we decided to turn a shared dream into reality. Khai left his tech job, and I transferred to Colorado. Settling in Broomfield, Khai dove into perfecting Moon Peppers, while I continued my banking journey.
March 2022 saw a pivotal decision as I bid farewell to banking, marking a move to the Springs in mid-April 2022. June of that year witnessed our debut at local farmers' markets. The response was humbling and heartwarming, surpassing our expectations. Along the way, we encountered not just customers but wonderful souls who became our extended family and mentors.
Our journey is a nod to the pickling traditions passed down by our grandmothers and the support of those who believed in us. With gratitude in our hearts, we invite you to join us in savoring the simplicity of Moon Peppers—a humble offering, crafted with love, and a touch of spice.
