Our marmalades are made with high quality citrus and we use a traditional three-day technique. This labour-intensive process is what gives our marmalades their rich and balanced flavour. Our jams are made with local fruit available in-season, and are cooked as quickly as possible to seize the pure flavour of the fruit and keep its intensely fresh taste.
All our preserves are made in small batches in copper preserving pans or enameled cast iron pans. Cooking smaller batches captures the bright flavours and the essence of the fruit. We use pure cane sugar, not beet sugar. Using just the right amount of sugar gives a perfect texture and lets the natural flavour of the fruit burst through.
At Le Meadow’s Pantry, we rarely need to use pectin to achieve the right texture for our preserves. We use fresh lemon juice, hand-pressed in our kitchen, pure cane sugar and honey. No added preservatives or food colouring. Our preserves are vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free, although they are processed in a facility that handles products that contain gluten. The pure cane sugar we use is refined without the use of animal products or by-products, so our preserves are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
