It’s a good old fashioned family affair at the Punta Clara Kitchen

Kim Pacey Clay’s Grandmother, Dot Pacey, started their family’s business in a little brick building in the back yard of her home in 1952. She and her husband started out making pralines and preserves for friends and then added cakes and other treats. Her products spoke for themselves and word of mouth spurred a successful business. A business that would keep this family occupied for many years to come. The Punta Clara Kitchen has stood the test of time and honors old fashion, homemade small batch candies, fudge, preserves and cakes.
In the mid 1970’s the candy kitchen was moved to Miss/Aunt Colleen’s house (after her death). This has sentimental significance in that this house was constructed in 1897 and was originally the home of Edward and Rosina Brodbeck, (Kim Pacey Clay’s great great grandparents). The family transformed the residential kitchen to meet commercial codes/standards and have been in operation in the historical, Victorian home ever since.
Their pralines, fudges, divinity, pecan driftwood, polliwogs, goober pies, and other candies are all made from their very own recipes. You will also find pickled okra, watermelon rind pickles, fig preserves,
old-fashioned apple butter, pepper jelly, scuppernong jelly, red raspberry jam, peach preserves and many others. Old fashioned pound cakes are available in a variety of flavors. Those are baked to order, so make sure to call and place your order in advance. Cheese straws are also an option – classic, hot and blue cheese! The products at Punta Clara are made from scratch and preservatives are not an option so be sure to enjoy them promptly. And for the person that has everything… Give the gift of goodies! Ask them to put together an assortment of items in a gift box or basket – they also offer shipping and gift certificates. Mosey on down to the road to Point Clear where you can watch them in the kitchen making theses candies and other specialties daily. You can even enjoy samples of their most popular treats.
