Feast tries out a selection of artisan Norfolk and Suffolk foodie goodies!
Seville Marmalade with Cognac Marinated Sultana, £4.95
Find Season’s Bounty on Facebook
This is a thick, firm set marmalade with a yummy bite to the rind, and the addition of golden sultanas soaked in cognac gives a delightfully boozy touch. Deep in colour and gloriously sticky, it isn’t too sweet or too bitter, making it perfect for breakfast. I actually tried it with my morning porridge which was delicious. The orange wasn’t too thick but chunky enough for you to know it’s in there!
Berczy Hard Seltzers
£26.95 for a pack of 12
If you’re looking for a healthier, guilt-free alcoholic drink for alfresco dining this summer, reach for Berczy hard seltzers. Made of just three ingredients: ultra-pure four-times distilled spirit derived from sugar beet, pure sparkling water and real fruit flavours, Berczy is ideal for the health-conscious and with just 75 calories per can and 4% ABV, it’s the perfect swap for heavier sugar alcohol drinks. Gluten-free, vegan-friendly, allergen-free and caffeine free, choose from three flavours: Peach and Raspberry, Passionfruit and Turmeric, and Lemon and Lime.
Turkish Delight Jelly
Find Cherished on Facebook
We were all slightly intrigued when we were handed a jar of Turkish Delight Jelly to try as we’ve enjoyed the odd piece of Turkish delight but never tried a jelly version before. As a keen baker, one of the team thought they would try to be a little creative. So far they’ve made a steamed sponge pudding and a Swiss roll. The rich, sweet, rose flavour of the jelly compliments a plain sponge perfectly. Spread on toast or added to a scone with cream, there are many ways to enjoy this jelly which is a great idea as a gift for a keen foodie, too.
Spiced Green Tomato and Apple Chutney
Stokes Sauces, £3.65
This is a new product from the well known Suffolk-based producer who offers a comprehensive range of sauces, condiments and more.
It’s a darkish, chunky chutney with hints of chilli, garlic and mustard seeds, plus lots of sourish Bramley apples which all combine to produce a sharp, tasty accompaniment. It smells great, too.
It’s great in cheese sandwiches, but add a dollop to pork dishes and you won’t be disappointed! Plus it is vegan, and both dairy and gluten free.
Ribusoli Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Tuscan Farm Shop, Burnham Market, £20.50 for 500ml
This single estate oil is produced in Montalcino in Tuscany by Wanda Djebbar – who also runs a lovely cafe/deli in Burnham Market, packed with goodies from her Italian farm. This extra virgin olive oil is very verdant, with a fresh grassy taste. It’s too good to cook with, rather dip, dip, dip with gorgeous breads, pour over salads or swirl on top of a bowl of soup. Also look out for Wanda’s range of wines – we say no more!
