Gooseberry Extra Jam
Gooseberries come from the same family of plants as blackcurrants, redcurrants and raspberries, the Saxifrages. There are many different varieties of gooseberry and we use hand-picked locally sourced green gooseberries to make our jam. We pick the fruit in June at the beginning of the summer season and this is normally the first preserve of the year that comes out of the kitchen. When cooked green gooseberries will produce a pink coloured preserve that darkens in the jar over time. Gooseberries produce a lovely sharp flavoured jam.
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.
