London larder: England Preserves
Famed English food writer, Jane Grigson, would have loved England Preserves with its quintessential English labels drawn from the archives of Curwen Press and its focus on artisan preserving.
Started by Sky Cracknell and Kai Knudsen in their kitchen in south-west London, both drew upon their family traditions of jam-making and preserving to create this collection of English inspired country preserves.
With its range including flavours such as Gooseberry and Elderflower Jam, Kentish Bramble, Strawberry Days, quince jam and damson cheese, each one is inspired by the great English larder, its orchards, and its food traditions. England Preserves never boils its jams to retain the highest of flavour and vibrancy of colour.
For a London essentials experience, try the London Marmalade - perfect on toast and made from Seville oranges or the Bermondsey Bramble to awaken summer days collecting blackberries by the road-side.
England Preserves is stocked widely but you can also find them at Spa Terminus. You can follow them on @EngPreserves. Design work for England Preserves was done by Here Design.
A true English classic and a must-have for any london larder.
Next time: We go in search of London roasters.. in other words, coffee.
