The Kitchen, Swanscoe
Our jams, jellies, cordials, sauces and more
We know exactly what's gone into our food as we spend an entire year looking after our fruit as it grows ... then we take time to gather it in by hand - and only when it's in season. Once that's done it's straight to cooking in traditional small batches ('just like Nana used to make'!) - so we can end up working some really long days!
There are some amazing flavours to be discovered in the wild too - and ones that you just won't find on the supermarket shelves. We love foraging and exploring the countryside around us for new and exciting finds - and we tend to not be disappointed!
We LOVE jam! But proper jam … a fruity explosion that has a higher fruit quantity than sugar. And we like to keep it traditional - every one of our jam jars is finished with a pretty vintage fabric topper and a bow so it looks as good as it tastes. Quintessentially English damson jam is my absolute favourite - made from squishy, juicy damsons from our orchard. What's your favourite?!
Our jellies are not just good on toast! They are the perfect accompaniment to meat dishes - try them alongside a roast or as an ideal addition to wild game.
Fruit cheeses are a popular side to any cheeseboard, ours are so packed full of fruit that they can be sliced - just like cheese , and they can also be enjoyed sliced in a sandwich, with a ploughman's or with a pie.
The now famous Toffee Apple Syrup has developed somewhat of a cult status amongst those with a sweet tooth. This is one of our most popular products and its uses are as great as your imagination. With a flavour that conjures up memories of bonfire nights past this mouth-wateringly tempting molten syrup can be drizzled on everything... we love it on ice cream, but it quite often used on everything from gammon roast to their breakfast porridge too!
Weddings and Celebrations
We ventured into wedding & celebration cakes because... who doesn't love cake?! We've been thrilled to be a part of many a special day - and we've even exhibited at The National Wedding Show in Manchester.
We adore fairytales and that is exactly what we love to create - whimsical, delicious and beautiful centrepieces straight from your imagination. From rustic romanticism to evoke countryside charm...to enchanted creations to exceed even the sweetest of dreams.
Our approach truly is 'homemade' … to create unrivalled flavours to truly tickle your tastebuds we use only the freshest eggs from our own hens and all our own homemade fruity jam and jelly fillings. And if you're gluten free...? So are we! We're firm belivers that there's a scrumptious gluten free version of everything.
For perfect homemade favours and place settings, why not treat your guests to one of our delicious jams or jellies? Topped with whimsical fabric and tied with a ribbon, we can even create a bespoke label just for your day. Or how about your own blend of apple juice or elderflower cordial for each table?
We can also do bespoke foodie hampers - thank you gifts for your top table or perhaps a treat to be savoured by the new Mr and Mrs?
And last but by no means least, have a look at our hire items: ever so pretty mismatched vintage crockery and glassware with silver teaspoons and cake forks, and our favourite garden games - so much fun!
