We have sourced Australian grown plums with lumps, bumps and scratches to hand craft this spread for you. Not too sweet, with warming notes of cinnamon our Spiced Plum spread is delicious on scones, stirred into porridge or in a rich red wine sauce.
Just like the Seville oranges in our Orange Coffee Marmalade, our Ruby Grapefruit supply is also hand picked from a selection of backyard trees. Citrus trees thrive in our climate and once trees are established they usually produce vast amounts of fruit. To unsure we have enough of this bestseller marmalade in stock we also work with second grade fruit from commercial growers.
More tangy than our traditionally bitterOrange Coffee Marmalade, Ruby Grapefruit results in a vibrantly orange-pink marmalade, laced with finely sliced rind.
Sourcing bitter Seville oranges in Queensland is not easy, but we’re lucky enough to have established a direct supply from two hobby growers with bearing backyard trees. The trees crop too much for the owners, so we are always invited to take the surplus. During the winter months when the oranges are ripe, we personally go and hand pick the fruit.
Back in the kitchen, we then infuse Australian arabica coffee – grown in the Noosa Hinterland – into our marmalade to create this modern breakfast delight.
Queensland’s Sunshine Coast is famous for its strawberry farms and we have formed a wonderful friendship with one local strawberry growing family. They call us whenever they have spare berries they don’t want to see to go to waste. Those strawberries might be undersized, oversized, heavily rained on, hail damaged or rejected for some other reason. We collect the berries farm direct and take them straight into our kitchen for preparation.
Be it bumpy, lumpy, scratched, scarred, tiny or surplus – we love all pears and think they are way too delicious to end up in the bin. Farmer Mario from the Stanthorpe region as well as growers in other parts of Australia always end up with fresh pear that isn’t quite perfect and that’s when we step in and take those imperfect pears into our kitchen.
