Damson Extra Jam
Damsons 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.
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.
