Masaloon is one such successful business developed by a young Donegal cook named Conor McEniff. Lockdown boredom found Conor stuck in the kitchen experimenting with ingredients trying to create the perfect concoction. Influenced by his love of Indian food and complex, sweet and savoury spices, Conor began selling his jarred-up sauces to family and friends who kept coming back for more.
Conor’s mantra is “that every spice and ingredient has a purpose, and they all work together in harmony to produce a little jar of goodness. Each product is extremely versatile and can be used on just about anything.”
Masaloon is now available to buy online and all over Ireland. The range proudly uses no colourings or preservatives and all products are vegan and coeliac friendly. Conor has tonnes of ideas in the pipeline, so keep an eye on his social media channels and visit www.masaloon.com to shop this exciting collection of chutney and curry pastes made in Donegal.
