Tucked in a little cottage kitchen off the path of the busy hustle of Salem, you will find Elizabeth, the owner of Peasley's Sweet Boutique, making her famous Sea Salt Caramels. The story doesn't start here in the warm kitchen - instead, it started in the Heartland of America, roots planted long ago among the cornfields of Iowa. Elizabeth comes from a long line of incredible sweets makers.
The vision of Peasley's Sweet Boutique rose up out of the jagged pieces of a broken heart. Late last year, Covid destroyed her family as she lost her Grandmother, Aunt, and dear Mother - all within 39 days of each other. After her deep losses, Elizabeth, a nurse, started to examine and refocus her life, seeking a way to soothe the ache. She had a desire to carry on the legacy of the women who came before. Her mother was an incredible baker - a sweets maker. She made thousands of pies and delicious desserts in her time and always knew when a bowl of popcorn was needed.
With lots of soul searching and growth, God stepped in and opened some doors. The dream of Peasley's Sweet Boutique was born.
Elizabeth went back to her roots and has started making Sea Salt Caramels to share with the world. Caramel-making for Elizabeth connects her to her mom, and at the same time enables her to build a relationship with you! Try one. Order a bunch! You will find nothing like them - amazingly creamy and delicious with just the right touch of salt. Eating a caramel from Peasley's Sweet Boutique makes you feel the love and enables you to pay tribute to the phenomenal people who shape us.
