Preserves steeped in family history
History abounds at Ludbrooke House Fine Foods. It begins on land recognised for its fecundity when butter was first produced by Ludbrooke in 1860.
Today Ludbrooke House produces a range of gourmet preserves and condiments, but it’s proud of the hundred year old recipes that are still used for the contemporary products. Those were the days when pride mattered in homemade products and it’s a tenet that Ludbrooke House abides by today.
Produced under the watchful eyes of Sam & Chris Ludbrook, who also run the luxury lodge, the gourmet preserves are preservative free, so once opened; don’t forget to store them in the fridge.
From the original Ludbrooke fig and lime orchard come their award winning Dessert Figs and Pickled Limes, products you’ll use again and again for their quality and versatility. The Dessert Figs are fat, brown, turkey figs slowly poached with fresh ginger and lemon slices in a rich sugar and vinegar syrup. Adding pickled limes to a good curry or a platter of fine cheeses will step up the conversation.
Available predominantly in northern food stores, you can purchase directly online – a website that’s a great resource for your Christmas shopping.
