Minou Morabāh: Hachiya Persimmon & Mexican Vanilla Jam

Seasonal preserves are upon us, and the first Home-grown Hachiya Persimmon & Mexican Vanilla batch of jam is ready to ship! After picking the persimmons in late November 2021, the fruit has been ripening these past several weeks, allowing for the astringency to reduce and soften to the optimal consistency. Persimmons along with coffee, tea, chocolate and wine are naturally abundant in tannins – giving it the delicious texture and taste we all yearn for. The combination of spice and warmth are the perfect spread over toast or as a marinade for all seasons, but especially during these chilly days of winter. Our seasonal preserves come with a lot of care and dedication supporting the fruit trees harvest throughout the year. As always we’ve: pH tested, sanitized, canned with recycled jars and pasteurized another of our family favorites. Come check out more details on what spices are in this special jam on Etsy.

Terminal Chain Clamps

A fun, new Minou design utilizing recycled positive and negative electrical terminal clamps. The Terminal Chain Clamps is constructed out of glass beads, Pyrite beads, Labradorite chips, Rose Quartz chips and wooden beads and is a multi-functioning accessory that can be used to fasten your mask or for nipple play – that which I left up to the imagination. This is the first of its kind and will be prototyping more to come. The base chain is made with copper wiring for a sleek, clean aesthetic. Come see on Etsy.

Everlast Wrap Necklace

The jewelry piece meant to outlast the rest of your collection — Vini in the delicately balanced, yet sturdy 42-inch Everlast wrap necklace constructed from brown soft suede and copper wire-wrapped, tumbled aquamarine gemstones. Aquamarine with its calming, celestial hues evokes truth and trusting in letting go. Mythology states, sailors used aquamarine as a talisman for good luck and in enhancing bravery to protect them on their seafaring journeys as it is a gemstone connected to all things consumed with the ocean and its magnetic ties to the moon. Aquamarine aides in supporting the Vishuddha chakra. If needed, it can help to overcome throat chakra blockages in confrontation, as aquamarine gently assists in minimizing the fear of speaking and reinforces clear reasoning — perfect for when Mercury retrograde makes its quarterly debut. Wrap around once, loop through or tie in a knot, the Everlast is a one-size fits all necklace. Available.
