Living in Essex we are very lucky to have the Tiptree Jam factory close by. The factory itself is quite a local visitor attraction, with the first jam being produced in 1885. There is an amazing tearoom and of course the gift shop. Always worth a visit for the Wilkin and Sons ltd produce they have, which never fail to meet everyones taste.
We're pleased to say we've been sent a fab selection of six of their conserves, jams and curds try, which arrived delivered directly to the door early one morning, in a strudy gift box.
What we got in the box
Rasberry Seedles Conserve
Orange with Malt Whisky Fine Cut Marmalade
Tiptree Orange Medium Cut Marmalade
Passion Fruit Curd
We've been doing a taste test of course.
Acting as camera woman I instructed hubby and my parents to do some taste testing. Here's what they thought!
The Passion Fruit Curd was liked by our three taste testers, they all said it had a citrus taste to it and that it was delicious. I must admit to having a taste too and agree it was very nice and moreish! I'm a lover of Lemon curd so I'm sure the rest of this jar will go down well.
I've never had quince myself but each tester agreed this was flavoursome with a great pear/apple taste.
The rasberry seedles is already a huge hit here. We always buy the Wilkin and Sons one. Personally I'm not a fan of seeded jams and conserves so this was great.
Now I have to be honest here I really don't like marmalde myself but my Dad and the Mr do, so of course they were going to try this one! Being fine cut you could see the slices of orange, which looks great on the bread. They both said it was tasty and Dad will be enjoying more over my parents stay this Christmas!
None of us had tried Loganberry before but it went down well with the taste testers! Very dark red in colour, it was nice and sweet.
Finally the Tiptree Orange Marmalde, which again we buy for the marmalde lovers. Not one for me, but it went down well with them.
None of the taste testers disliked any of the jams and conserves we were sent. Best I get making a few sponge cakes, so that we can use all the delicious jars up.
Was there anything anyone did not like? Not at all. What's not to like! The jams were delivered carefully boxed with a discount code, should we wish to order more. The boxed jams and conserves would make a great present for anyone liking Tiptree produce and I really cannot think of any negatives. These 340g sized jars range from £2.19 to £2.69 each.
