Fruit preserves are preparations of fruitsvegetables and sugar, often canned or sealed for long-term storage. The ones we sell are simply gorgeous. From the essential strawberry and raspberry to the extraordinary mouth popping blackcurrant..like summer in a jar. These are crucial country skills for preserving the goodness of summer and autumn fruits way into the dark mornings of winter.

Have a hunt for our wild plum jams, crab apple and rowan berry jellies, and our remarkable array of marmalades (oranges are NOT the only fruit!). Them match with fresh bread or some of our gorgeous fruits for breakfast...there can be no better way to start the day.

Many varieties of fruit preserves are made globally, including sweet fruit preserves, such as those made strawberry or apricot, and savory preserves, such as those made from tomatoes or squash. The ingredients used and how they are prepared determine the type of preserves; jams, jellies, and marmalades are all examples of different styles of fruit preserves that vary based upon the fruit used. In English the world over the plural form "preserves" is used to describe all types of jams and jellies.
