I gotta tell you guys something…. Moscoto jelly is a thing. So is Sangria jelly. Yes, they’re real. They’re delicious and I cannot get enough of them. My friend, that I haven’t actually met yet, makes them and has a kickstarter going on right now to help her secure a kitchen so she can move out of what is called a cottage license. Right now she can’t sell to resturants, online, wholesale… anything like that. I know she’s posted about it on various websites and spreading the word about her kickstarter.
This kickstarter would cover the cost of licensing, the provision of a state certified kitchen, employees to help her get everything done, business insurance, supplies, ingredients, travel costs for potential clients. Plus she’d be able to get into awesome larger farmer’s markets like Pepper Place market. (THE DREAM!)
She has 8 days left on the kickstarter and is only at $4,315 out of $25,000 – click here for the link
The jellies I’ve tried are
-Moscoto – This one had a really great flavor. It was the first one I tasted and I was pleasantly surprised that it was just like the wine.
-Sangria – By far my favorite one. It is yummy and has the best flavor. I seriously could just eat this one out of the jar by the spoonful. It’s SO GOOD!
– Pinot Grigio – I’m not a huge fan of Pinot Grigio wine normally. This jelly had a light wine flavor.
-Chardonnay – I just have had a small taste of this one because I’m saving it for some recipes that I want to try. It also has a light wine flavor like the Pinot Grigio.
They’re all delicious! My favorites are Sangria and Moscoto (of course, those are my favorite wines, too!) and I’ve eaten spoonfuls of them plain. I’ve stalked her blog and found some great recipes to try with them this weekend. Let me tell you guys, you don’t even know how yummy these are. Um, Hello – Chardonnay Jelly Vinaigrette, anyone?? Yum.
So far I’ve had them with cream cheese and wheat thins. I can’t wait to try some new things with these jellies and get more. I’m seriously obsessed with them.
