Sweet-tart flavour organic gooseberry jam
Prepared with delicious freshly picked Gooseberries. It is tangy and fruity and has a good balance of sweet and sour, unlike some shop-bought jams which are too sugary.
It takes a lot longer to make the jam, as we don’t use the thickeners or pectin that you sometimes see in the list of ingredients on jam, to produce it quickly. We use organic sugar as a setting aid.
We only use Soil Association certificated produce in our preserves. Being organic is important to me as I like to be able to read an ingredients label and know exactly what that ingredient is without having to have a degree in chemistry to decipher it.
Excellent on toast for breakfast or with scones for afternoon tea. You can add them to some savoury dishes due to their tartness, go well with fatty meats such as pork or duck or oily fish such as mackerel.
Keep refrigerated after opening and use within 4 weeks.
Meet Hembridge Organics - Somerset, UK
Finding myself “unemployable” after the birth of our son, I initially started Hembridge Organics as an internet box scheme supplying local customers with organic vegetables grown in Somerset, sourcing vegetables from five organic producers.
I soon realised that farmers would grow the same fruit and vegetables as each other resulting in a “glut” for the county. I decided that surely, we could turn this glorious harvest into something else. What to do with the gluts, over ripe and ugly looking produce? All perfectly good just not that pretty. We give this otherwise abandoned fruit and veg a second chance, a new lease of life and turn it into delicious award winning, vegan organic jams and chutneys.
