For over 20 years, Wild & Fruitful have been creating their jams, chutneys, marmalade's and relishes from deep in the heart of Cumbria.
By using fresh and locally sourced Cumbrian produce and ingredients, Wild & Fruitful hand-make their preserves & relishes in small batches using the traditional 'open pan'
method and every single jar is gluten & dairy free, vegan friendly AND 100% natural!
Cumbrian Preserves with Provenance
We received a range of Wild & Fruitful's very attractive jars of traditionally handmade,
jams, chutneys and marmalade's and began our review with Wild & Fruitful's
Extra Strawberry Jam.
This jam is...well, JAM packed with summer-sweet & succulent Cumbrian strawberries.
It sure is full of flavour and tastes like summer, just in a jar!
Best served on hot buttered crumpets, toasted tea cakes or even in your cake creations!
The chocoholics among us can and will indulge in the rich and dark, Raspberry & Dark Chocolate Jam. The deeply satisfying chocolate intensity contrasts brilliantly with
the sweetness of the raspberries. A match made in food heaven for sure!
By using locally sourced damsons and with a generous splosh of Cumbrian gin, the
boozy Damson & Gin Jam offers a wonderfully rich & fruity flavour.
We served and sampled this (quite a lot actually!) on warm buttered bread and loved
both the tartness & the texture.
The Pear & Stem Ginger Jam offers a sweet, deep warming flavour, making this a great
alternative and a natural sweetener in your porridge on a cold winters morning!
The chunks of ginger within Wild & Fruitful's Seville Orange & Ginger Marmalade gives
us a powerful and welcome kick, add this to the delicious combination of spice &
citrus, for a mouth watering & moreish toast topper. Great for baking too!
Just a twist of the lid and you'll immediately detect the whisky in the Seville Orange
& Whisky Marmalade!
This zesty marmalade is deliciously mellow and warming. We recommend serving on
warm toast for a decadent and boozy breakfast.
The fruity, yet spicy Curried Cumbrian Relish is packed with apricots and apples
making this a 100% natural, mouth watering AND an interesting accompaniment to
any meat dish, especially to your curry.
The dark and deeply spiced Cumberland Chutney has to be the favourite for the
traditional Ploughman's and we all readily agreed that this would complement any
cheeseboard... A staple for every fridge.
The tropical flavours of Wild & Fruitful's Mango Chutney combined with the
wonderful blend of garlic, chilli, ginger and spices makes this the tastiest mango
chutney around. You can either stir in a spoonful to liven up your curry OR just
The perfect combination of fruits, spices and locally brewed ale goes into Wild &
Fruitful's hearty Keswick Ale Chutney.
This chutney is simply delicious as a sandwich filling and terrific with cold meats,
cheese or pies.
You can taste the sweet apricots and juicy apples in the Fruity Lakeland Chutney.
This well balanced chutney is sweet & spicy (with a little punch) and an excellent
condiment for cold meats and burgers too!
We believe that the Wild & Fruitful range is a pretty fabulous option for farm shops who are looking for artisan, handmade, perfectly natural preserves & refined relishes...
