Jams, Preserves, Marmalades, Chutneys and Pickles

Everything that comes in a jar has been mainstream Country Markets fare since the "Jam and Jerusalem" days when it was still part of the Women's Institute (over 20 years ago).  Apart from being home-produced, like all our goods, the jams are largely made from fruit growing in our gardens.  There is nothing in them except  fruit, sugar and (sometimes) lemon juice.

Chutneys and pickles contain a mixture of purchased and garden-grown produce.  The latter is generally the main part as we make chutneys from produce which is in glut at the height of the season.
