'All aspects of our preserve making are given careful consideration as we strive for perfection at every stage'.
In 1989 the first of our founding principles was to make preserves of the highest quality and that remains at the heart of what we do today.
All aspects of our preserve making are given careful consideration as we strive for perfection at every stage. From the detailed development of the first sample including taste, colour and consistency, through controlled production, to the choice and application of our classically designed label.
Each of our recipes includes quantities and methods designed to endorse quality and replicate the best of home cooking.
Our pickling onions are prepared as soon as the grower has lifted and dried them – no later than October so that they can be enjoyed at their most desirable – small, crisp and sweet.
We have carefully developed a warmly spiced and piquant vinegar to preserve them for the months ahead.
Bramley apples, destined for any number of preserves, are peeled and cored by hand to ensure their vibrant freshness. Locally gathered herbs including Mint and Rosemary are stripped from their stalks and captured in fruit jellies where their characteristic oils and unique flavours are at their most potent.
The quality of our products is defined by all of the following – careful sourcing, generous quantities, simple balanced recipes, no additives, preservatives or even pectin, natural sets dependent on the properties of fruit alone, unrefined cane sugars and skilful cooking.
