Peter Morrell, Editor, comments “I recently tried two of The Cherry Tree’s Christmas gift packs. The first was the two jar Savoury Favourites. The gift pack came beautifully packaged and included the bonus of an attractive re-useable metal preserve spoon. On the back of the pack is a Mediterranean Quiche recipe using one of the chutneys and some inventive ways to incorporate The Cherry Tree’s products into a range of dishes.

The first chutney I tried was the Real Ale, based on lots of healthy veggies. I tried it with extra mature cheddar cheese, and it was the perfect complement. The second was the Spicy Tomato and Caramelised Onion chutney, I really liked this, and it really livened up a Spanish rice dish I was eating. These products were fresh tasting with lots of flavour and have both been recognised by the Great Taste, and Taste of the West awards.

The second gift pack was the Secret Santa savoury ‘Tube to Go’ pack. This contained a selection of four pickles, there was the Spicy Tomato and Caramelised Onion Chutney, the Cheeseboard Chutney. Chilli Jam and Sweet & Spicy Garlic with Nigella Seeds Pickle. I paired the Garlic pickle with a Thai curry, which really gave the dish an extra dimension, The Cheeseboard Chutney would be the perfect serve with your Christmas Stilton and the Chilli Jam will give a real kick to sausages and burgers.

This is just a small selection of The Cherry Tree range, the are many more imaginative chutneys, a wide choice of jams, marmalades and curds – cheeses, pâtés, biscuits & scones, condiments, dressings and coffee. In addition to the gift packs there is a collection of selection boxes which would make an ideal gift for the foodie in your life.

These are great artisan products, cooked in small batches to ensure you will get the maximum quality, taste and enjoyment when you use them.”
