I am new to this forum and would really like some informative advice.
I work from home and I would like to start selling some home-made jams, cooking sauces and cookies for some extra income. I'm not looking to make a significant amount of money (some, would be nice) because it's just a hobby that I enjoy and wouldn't mind selling some of the stuff to other housewives in the area.
I will distribute flyers in the my neighbourhood about the handmade food items I make but do I need a license for this?
What are the implications of getting sued and getting into trouble because someone has fallen sick (god forbid but who knows, it might happen) from eating the stuff I make?
Any help or insight is much appreciated. I would really like to do this for myself. I'm very bored just sitting at home all day. I would like to feel useful and make some extra pocket money (not my husband's) doing something I enjoy.
