I was recently sent one of their items; the Piddington Jam Gift Box. A beautiful gift box including three jams.
Lavender Marmalade – Traditional, dark and rich with coarse cut rind. The lavender is not overpowering – just enough to give it depth. This was gorgeous on my toast this morning. I have a new love for all things lavender so I was excited to try this one.
Strawberry and Pepper Jam – Coarse ground black pepper, which brings out the flavour of the straweberries. The peppery kick comes in towards the end giving you a balance of sweet and warmth. This one is perfect with sausages/pork or over vanilla ice cream. They may sound like strange combinations but trust me, try it.
Apricot and Rosemary Jam – Decent sized flecks of rosemary as it helps keep the herb and fruit balance just right. The rosemary is quite strong, but compliments the apricots very well. It’s recommend to try this over sliced figs on ricotta cheese.
Piddington – Traditionally made British Jam. Classic fruits marvelously mixed with herbs or spices to make your eyes widen in wonderment.
Never again will you have a moment quite like your first taste of Piddington Jam – the ruthless marriage of sugar and fruit will arouse your delight and mischievousness. With a frenzy of concoctions – blurring sweet, spice and herb – envelop yourself in a naughty moment: stealing jam spoonful by spoonful straight from the jar. You are not alone and will not be judged… if caught!
Once released, Piddington Jam takes on the appearance of an uncovered jewel: Glistening. Discovered. Inviting. Coveted. Hard to resist and unwilling to stop…
Piddington believe jam has a lot more potential than just on toast and scones, and so do I. Try them as an accompaniment to cheeses, meats, vegetables, cakes, deserts and so much more.
Do you have any suggestions of what to try jam with?
This is the perfect gift for the Jam lover in your life. Or just treat yourself.
