Tracklements Festive Gourmet Gifts – Simply Parfait!

New Tracklements Handmade Pickles and Preserves Cookbook

Christmas is gingerbread biscuits, plum pudding, marzipan-filled stolen, roast turkey, sticky ham, crisp parsnips, flinty cheese … and Tracklements Cranberry, Port & Orange Sauce, Christmas Spice Chutney and Particularly British Piccalilli, all presented in Le Parfait jars – elegant enough to go straight from the larder to the table.

Tracklements Cranberry, Port & Orange Sauce Le Parfait Jar, £5.50 for 310g available from good fine food delis and farm shops nationwide and online Made with whole cranberries and as red and rosy as a cherub’s cheeks it’s a marvel how these choice ingredients combine to such a dramatically good effect where the tingling tartness cuts through rich meats like pork and goose and faultless when combined with soft cheese.

Tracklements Christmas Spice Chutney Le Parfait Jar, £5.50 for 300g available from good fine food delis and farm shops nationwide and online. Packed with cranberries, Bramley apples and a host of fragrant spices including allspice, nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, it’s a erfect partner for the Boxing Day spread of cheese and cold meats, and particularly delicious in turkey sandwiches.

Tracklements Particularly British Piccalilli Le Parfait Jar, £5.50 for 260g available from good fine food delis and farm shops nationwide and online. This traditional British condiment is spot on when it comes to Cheddar, cold meats and crusty pork pies. A curious mustard pickle packing a rather sharp punch and moreish crunch is beautiful piled onto a Ploughman’s and alongside meaty terrines as well as Scotch eggs.

Check out our tips and tricks to creating the perfect cheeseboard to serve to friends and family over the Christmas season:


  • Spiced Plum Chutney; Tangy and well spiced made with Stanley plums for creamy Cheddars
  • Original Onion Marmalade; Perfectly balanced for robust, nutty, mature cheeses

Cheshire, Lancashire and Wensleydale

  • Caramelised Red Onion Relish; The gentle acidity of Wensleydale is perfectly offset by the intense caramelised onions
  • Apricot & Ginger Chutney; Sweet apricots and warm ginger makes the most of crumbly Cheshire and buttery Lancashire

Hard Sheeps’ Cheese

  • Quince Fruit Cheese; Jammy and rich with a sharp tang, ideal for manchego and similar cheeses
  • Gooseberry Fruit Cheese; Floral sweet-sharp gooseberries ideal for hard mountain cheeses

Brie and Camembert

  • Damson Fruit Cheese; Sweet harmony with buttery Camembert

Goats’ Cheese

  • Sticky Fig Relish; The sharpness of the Goats’ Cheese is offset by the richness of the relish
  • Blue Cheese
  • Apple & Cider Brandy Chutney; Classic apple chutney is the perfect match for strong, earthy blues

Washed Rind

  • Country Garden Chutney; Strong smelling but with a soft and gentle flavour, washed rind cheese adore this subtly spiced chutney
