What More Can I Say About Noni's Gourmet? Yummy Goodies That you Must Try!

   I gotta say, I am a bit of a snack lover and sweet tooth. That was the motivation behind a late night perusing through Etsy's edible offerings. I came across Noni's Gourmet and simply could not resist purchasing her Blueberry Syrah Jelly. That's right, jelly with Syrah wine. Sounds Delicious, right? Well, I can say it is So delicious that I wanted to share a bit of info about this amazing Etsyian! Leona "Noni" was nice enough to do a little interview with me and this is what she had to say:

When did you get started in Making Jams and Jellies?

***I started helping my mom and grandmother when I was very young and I spent a lot of time in the kitchen learning from them. Those are some of my fondest and most treasured memories.

How do you come up with your unique flavor combinations?

***I love experimenting! (And I have wonderful friends and family that are more than happy to be my "guinea pigs".) Some of my favorite creations are my jams/jellies that contain wine, champagne and whiskey. I actually don't even drink! I just love the intricate flavors and complexities.

What suggestions could you make to anyone who may want to follow the same creative path?

***Do what you love! It's so important to love what you do and share that with anyone and everyone. It gives me so much joy to share my products.

***Where do you get your inspiration?

The beautiful Wenatchee Valley I live in is abundant with a variety of fresh fruits throughout the year, so I don't have to look very far for inspiration. My oldest daughter loves wine and is always there to suggest a certain fruit paired with the right wine. I also get suggestions from my friends and family.
