A Family Tradition

Grandma Pruitt developed the original CHA CHA recipe in the heart of South Carolina. Mrs. Pruitt’s recipe honors her spirit. It has been passed down through generations. The recipe was derived from the need to preserve bountiful harvests of home grown vegetables. It was often a family affair where everyone would come together and help in the canning process.

CHA CHA means “no food ever wasted.”

Today we continue to celebrate the tradition of family and community and saving all food by giving back.
