All of our jams are extra jams, having more fruit in than typical supermarket brands. An extra jam has to have a minimum of 45g fruit per 100g product and must be made from whole fruit. Each of our jams is made seasonally and we use hand-picked, locally sourced ingredients wherever possible. We use granulated cane sugar in all of our jams and do not add any artificial flavours, preservatives or sweeteners.
Our jams have a best before date one year from the date of production and will be fine kept in a cupboard, larder or other cool, dark, dry place for many months; once opened they should be refrigerated and used within 3-4 weeks.
Jellies are made from only the juice of the fruit strained though a muslin bag, therefore the yield is lower per batch than would be obtained with a jam. Jellies should be clear and not cloudy and may be flavoured with herbs or other spices. Many jellies can be served instead of a jam, for those who don’t like fruit pips for example, but many also make a lovely accompaniment to savoury dishes such as cheese or as a condiment to accompany a Sunday roast. We use granulated cane sugar in all of our jellies and do not add any artificial flavours, preservatives or sweeteners.

Apricot Extra JamApricot Extra Jam is a lovely traditional flavour jam and one of our most popular. Our jam is made from halved fresh apricots, which produces a lovely soft set and flavoursome jam. While this is lovely spread on toast it is also commonly used by cake bakers to spread on a rich fruit cake to help a marzipan layer stick to the cake before icing.£3.50 Add to cart
Blackberry and Apple Extra JamBlackberries can be found growing wild throughout the UK and are more commonly known as brambles. We use cultivar varieties in our jam, rather than wild grown fruit, which produce larger and more juicy berries although there is no avoiding the pips! Apples belong to the rose family as well as blackberries so these two fruits together make a wonderful combination with a smoother texture than blackberries alone. A spoonful of this jam goes wonderfully in a bowl of rice pudding.£3.50 Add to cart

Chuckleberry Extra JamA chuckleberry is a hybrid fruit and has a redcurrant, gooseberry and jostaberry (blackcurrant & gooseberry cross) parentage. This fruit has hints of all three parents and produces a lovely sharp, tart, but sweet flavour with very few seeds. This is our best seller and people tell us it “tastes like jam used to taste”. Use this jam as a lovely alternative to blackcurrant – it has a similar flavour, but more interesting.£3.90 Add to cart

Damson Extra JamDamsons are members of the plum family native to the UK and Ireland, but the fruits are smaller and have a slightly sharper flavour. The fruit when ripe has a lovely blue/black colour and produces a firm set, richly flavoured jam. The fruit we use is hand-picked locally from foraged fruit and we remove most of the stones before cooking, but some are left in while cooking and impart a slight almond flavour to the jam. We do our best to remove these after cooking, but the finished product may contain stones. Available late August.£3.50 Add to cart
Gooseberry and Elderflower Extra JamElderflower is a traditional accompaniment to gooseberry and produces a preserve with a subtly different flavour from gooseberry alone. The flower heads are foraged in June and washed before the small white flowers are added to the gooseberries at the beginning of cooking. When cooked green gooseberries and elderflowers will produce a pink coloured preserve that darkens in the jar over time. Gooseberry and elderflower is a lovely sharp flavoured jam – summer on a spoon!£3.50 Add to cart

Gages are sweeter and have a more refined flavour than plums, making this one of our more popular soft set preserves. This jam is made from halved, stoned fruit, but occasionally a stone may find its way into the pan.£3.50 Add to cart
