Getting professional advice


A little while ago, a friend asked if he could photograph my business for a college project.

He spent the day watching me making a cake, flapjacks and chutney, and taking pictures of the preserves I had already made. I will be adding these to my blogs over the coming months.

It was fascinating watching him at work, getting the lighting just right and making the foods I had made look appetising. I especially like the selection of jars – who would have guessed that jams, jellies and chutneys could look so good!

A busy week- and a busy weekend


Last Saturday, I went to Frant Primary School to sell preserves and Christmas food gifts at their Christmas Fair. It was my first opportunity to sell to the general public so I was interested to see how it went. I had 2 chutneys, a jam and a marmalade open to taste as well as samples of Panforte and Christmas cake. It was good to get such positive feedback and I was delighted to sell several jars and cakes.

Then on Sunday, I delivered an order to for their hampers – oatcakes, almonds, biscotti, Panforte, chutneys, mincemeat and compĂ´te. I hope the food will be enjoyed with the excellent wines.

There is still time to order a Christmas cake or a Panforte to enjoy at Christmas and I still have some jars of mincemeat if you want to make your own mince pies. Please email me at with your requirements.
