Proper Marmalade

Made in Petworth

When I was little, I used to sit on the Aga and read aloud to my mother while she cooked; she had a house cow, sheep and hens and we were pretty much self-sufficient in food.  She made her own bread, kept bees, grew vegetables and fruit and I’m pretty sure at one time she even made beer.  I especially remember the marmalade-making as the chopping took so long and we could get a good couple of chapters in. 

 

Then when I married I realised how hard it was to buy proper marmalade so I started making my own, beginning with a good old Katie Stewart recipe, tinkering about with setting points and wrinkles on saucers and all of that.  A couple of years ago people started asking if they could buy it from me and I decided to start a business, making it at home in the same way with my mother’s pre-war jam pan (now upgraded to some smart new ones), listening to the radio and experimenting with flavours and peel thicknesses.

 

 My children helped with the branding and label design; there are six flavours and I am very proud of my product.  It sells at both the Petworth and Arundel Farmers’ Markets, at The Hungry Guest food shop in Petworth and in the Fittleworth Community Shop.  

This year I won two Golds and three Silvers for the five flavours I entered in the World's Original Marmalade Awards at Dalemain in Cumbria.
