Products

All products are made from local and seasonal produce [where possible]. A lot of fruits are sourced from local orchards and some comes courtesy of my friends if they are fortunate enough to have trees or a glut of vegetables in their backyards. I also have a sizeable vegetable garden and greenhouse and my husband hides out down there! Nothing contains any man-made chemicals or preservatives. My products contain no artificial colourings, preservatives or sinister E-numbers. Often parents will seek me out if their children have food allergies because they know my food isn’t harmful at all.

Everything is hand made by me in my kitchen so I have full knowledge of what goes into my products, so if it is not good, I simply don’t cook it.

Whether it is Jams, Marmalade , Chutney or Curd , my cooking follows the seasons. In November , Mango Chutney makes a reappearance on my stall. The green tomatoes are only available from early December onwards for about two months. In autumn I cook like a crazy woman because there is an abundance of fruits and vegetables around. In citrus season the marmalades come out to play … and so it goes. There is something comforting about following the seasons, something homey and satisfying. Just right.
