Galloway Lodge describe Poacher’s Pickle as their “most popular chutney” and claim it is “world famous”. This tomato and apple based chutney is extremely versatile and is the perfect accompaniment to almost anything from roast meats and sausages to pies and cheese sandwiches.
The website says: “Established in 1971 by Nigel Hesketh, Galloway Lodge Preserves has grown into one of the most popular and successful producers of high quality marmalade, jams, chutney, jelly and mustard in Scotland. Now run by Fiona Hesketh with help from her two sons Sholto and Ruaridh and our very able staff (Mango & Chilli the cats and Lola the spaniel are not much use though) we are a true family business that is obsessed with the quality of our product and ensuring that each jar that we produce is as good as the last. Only the finest ingredients are used and cooked in small batches using traditional methods – this guarantees a quality product with an authentic taste.”
If you are new to chutneys and preserves then this is a great one to start with as the chutney is well balanced with a fruity palate. We’ve awarded this a SLOAN! Factor of 8.5
