Maureen has been making and selling jams locally for many years. She specialises in unusual jams – that’s to say, flavours you will not find in supermarkets. With the help of recipes handed down from her grandmother, her mother-in-law etc. she aims to keep the tradition of ancient combinations of flavours alive. For example, jams such as rhubarb & ginger, or apricot & almond have been known for centuries. Maureen finds the fruit locally if at all possible – from friends’ gardens and from local farms.
Her specialities include traditional
- British Orange Marmalade,
- Blackberry & Apple,
- Rhubarb & Ginger
- Apricot & Almond Jams
– but also some old favourites such as strawberry, plum and black cherry. Leading up to Thanksgiving and Christmas, she also makes home-made mincemeat for those traditional mince pies, and Christmas (plum) puddings and brandy butter.
