Garden of England is a new range of English preserves, chutneys, condiments, pickles and compotes that evoke childhood memories of scrumping apples, picking and eating fruit straight from the trees and returning home to find the copper pan bubbling away on the stove with a fragrant aroma of fresh jam or marmalade.
What makes this range different from most commercial competitors is that Garden of England only uses English fruit and vegetables grown on carefully selected farms from across England and is picked when in season and at their best quality.
The new range uses English onions, shallots, gooseberries, beetroot, strawberries, apricots, Bramley apples, plums and rhubarb. Garden of England’s production methods have also been inspired by yesteryear to ensure that the flavours and textures of the English fruit and vegetables are retained and captured in every mouthful; it needs to be ‘the taste you remember’.
English Bramley Apple Chutney with Biddenden Cider
Garden of England take scrumptious Kent-grown Bramley Apples, delicately spice them (adding ginger and cinnamon) and a splash of Biddenden Cider to create this delicious, rich chutney. Biddenden vineyard is Kent’s oldest commercial vineyard so there’s no better partner to the Kentish Bramley Apples.
The chutney is the perfect accompaniment to pork, cold meats pork pies and a ploughman’s.
Garden of England is embedded with provenance, authenticity and seasonality and is being launched at a time when these key issues are in the mindset of the consumer. No other commercial range can compare with using all English fruit and vegetables and producing such a diverse, comprehensive range.
