Find us at the annual street fair in Bungay outside Castle Inn on Earsham Street. We have a good range of Christmas Preserves including our award winning Date & Chestnut Ale Chutney and a Spiced Redcurrant & Crabapple Jelly. Tasters available.
We were delighted to learn this week that we have won a 1 Star Gold Award from the Great Taste Awards for Date & Chestnut Ale Chutney. This lovely sticky date chutney is made with Chestnut Ale from Grain Brewery and has ginger and chilli to spice it up a little. A great chutney for Christmas.
The Great Taste Awards is the world’s largest and most rigorous food awards scheme involving over 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting. Established in 1994, it encourages and mentors artisan food producers, offering a unique benchmarking and product evaluation service leading to an independent accreditation that enables small food and drink businesses to compete against supermarket premium own label brands.
Janet said, “This is the second year I have entered the competition, so I am delighted to win another gold star after last year’s win for Headcracker Chutney. I’m also pleased for Grain Brewery based next door to me at Alburgh, who supply the Chestnut Ale and for whom I make the Chutney.
Join local master jam-maker, Janet Peachey, of Peacheys Preserves at this masterclass and learn how quick and easy it is to make jam and conserves. Janet will show you how to use a variety of fruits to create different flavours and give you lots of new ideas for baking.
Jams can be used for many things other than bread and scones – strawberry & vanilla is great in sponges and chilli jam is fantastic in chocolate brownies!
