The Enchanted Kitchen
The Enchanted Kitchen ‘Yea Ole Apothecary came about as a dream of Deborah ‘Dani’ Gauntz. In the beginning, she combined two passions that had been passed down to her.
The first was a love and a great talent for canning unique Jams, Jellies, and Preserves. After winning many ribbons and a Ball award at the Cabarrus County Fair and then many ribbons and a Best Of Show at the North Carolina State Fair she decided to have he kitchen inspected by the state so she could legally produce and sell her wares.
The second comes from family traditions and recipes that have been passed down for at least six generations. Dani is a sixth generation Apothecary and the family ways were taught to her by her grandmother and great aunt. These include a vast knowledge and natural awareness of the uses of herbs in creams, lotions, salves, tinctures, teas and many other products that she spends hours pouring her natural ability and love into.
