Pickles, Preserves & Pantry Fare

Here you can find a broad selection of pickles, jams, marmalades and other preserves. Recipes that continue the bounty of spring right through the year and serve up tangy chutneys and tantalising pickles for spreading on your home-baked bread!

Preserving has diminished in necessity since the introduction of refrigeration and commercial food production, but don't let this put you off, take it as a challenge! Make a bubbling vat of chutney and give your friends a home-made treat this Christmas. Make your own jam when fruit is abundant and reap the rewards on a hot buttery scone.
