Jams & Pickles

We have a fantastic range of locally produced jams and pickles. Mike Morton of Find Inspiration in Food produces some excellent preserves made from fresh, seasonal, local produce. The ethos of Mike’s company is to support local growers and producers and keep ‘food miles’ to a minimum. You will find the acronym ‘AZFM’ Almost Zero Food Miles – keeping the mileage from the growing to the point of sale to a minimum.


The Find Inspiration in Food range includes the expected yet distinctive strawberry extra, raspberry extra and blackberry extra jams to the more unusual rhubarb & ginger preserve and raspberry & rose jam and of course we cannot leave out the delicious range of award winning marmalades.  All of the Find Inspiration range are suitable for vegetarians and vegans and are gluten free.

In store you will also find a wide range of Mrs Darlington’s and Cottage Delight jams, preserves and chutneys which includes our best seller ‘Mrs Darlington’s Lemon Curd’.  If you have a favourite Mrs Darlington’s or Cottage Delight product and you can’t see it on our shelves – just ask in the shop and we will do our best to get it for you.

For those with perhaps a less sweet tooth or whose diet demands it we usually have in stock Thursday Cottage jams and marmalade made with less sugar than traditionally made preserves and naturally sweetened with fructose.
