Given the seasonalitity of some of our products, sometimes stock levels are low and over sell / go out of stock before we can update the website.

- Are your products suitable for vegetarians?
We use English Beet Sugar not Cane and therefore believe this also makes our products vegan friendly too!
- Are your products gluten / nut / allergy free?
Any allergens are noted on the side of the jar. Please feel free to contact us should you have any specific enquiries regarding a particular product.
- Are your products suitable for diabetics?
No. However, as our products are high in fruit, they have a very strong full flavour and so a little goes a long way!
- How long will your products keep once opened?
Marmalades, preserves and conserves must be refridgerated upon opening. They should then keep for a few weeks happily in the fridge.
We are confident you will love our products so much that we doubt you will have any left past the first couple of weeks! Extra breakfasts will be called for 😉
Our chutneys will last longer once opened. please store these in a cool dark place away from direct sunlight.
- How long will your products keep unopened?
Please see the Best Before Date on our jars.
Please note, the Best Before Date doesn not mean that our products must be discarded after the date has elapsed, merely that our products will be at a premium before the end date.
- What is the difference between jams, preserves and conserves?
For a product to be called a “Jam”, the jam must contain 60g / 100g sugar in the finished product. (60% sugar)
Most of our products do not reach such a high sugar content as we are not prepared to compromise taste by increasing the sugar content.
Preserves and Conserves look and behave as a jam, but cannot be statutorily defined as a jam.
A preserve is traditionally made by putting sugar on fruit overnight which gives a larger chunk fruit based within a slightly softer set.
A conserve is when something else is added to the fruit, for example, Rhubard and Ginger or Apricot and Brandy.
