Recipes that are delicious and that always work!

You know these recipes are delicious because if I didn't think that they were fabulous . . . I wouldn't be showing them to you. You can also be sure that these recipes work for the same reason! The rest is simply a matter of taste.

Show mums just how special they are this Mother's Day with a beautiful box of award winning Radnor Preserves arriving on their doorstep.  Even if sons and daughters can't be there in person, preserve-maker Joanna Morgan hand-makes preserves and marmalades so delicious and unique in flavour, that they'll top the traditional bouquet.

The collection is perfect for mums who enjoy exploring their culinary skills, as the Snowdon Marmalade gives a zesty twist to bread and butter puddings, whilst the gold mdal World Marmalade Award winning Sicilian Blood Orange transforms casserole dishes.

Flavours also include the indulgent dark chocolate and pear Belle-Helene, Clementine & Cointreau, Rhubarb & Caramelized Fig and Great Taste Award winning Raspberry & Crushed Cardamom.  Gifr boxes and hampers can also contain a personalized message.

A box of three costs £15 plus P&P or for a real treat, try a hamper for £50, which contains 7 jars and a recipe book.   All are gluten-free, vegan-friendly and free from artificial perservatives and additives.

I was sent a jar of their Great Taste Award Winning 2013 Black Currant & Vanilla Preserve to try out.

I found it to be lovely and thick with lots of fruit as well as having a heavenly scented of vanilla.  All in all it went down a real treat with some homemade crumpets.

As fans of black currants, we both really enjoyed this jam.  Tune in tomorrow for the crumpet recipe.  You're in for a real treat.

Many thanks to Radnor Preserves for sending me a jar of jam to enjoy.   Although I was sent the jam, any and all opinions are my own.   This isn't award winning jam for no reason.   It's really lovely.


  1. Pretty packaging too..Jams are not lost on you!

  2. I think I like jam too much Monique! xxoo

  3. Dear Marie,
    thank you for the heart attack. Here I am in the depths of planning the missus 50th next week and our 25th later in the year and up pops your post on Mother's Day! Thankfully over here we honour our matriarchs after the glaciers have retreated in May. ;)

    However, those are some lovely looking in jams and will be on the short list in a couple of months. Thank you for sharing your review.

  4. So sorry Pat! I forgot Mothers Day isn't until May in North America! I always have to remember to buy my moms card in March so I can send it to her in
    May! I have to remember not to put it in such a safe place that I can still find it when I need it! Lol
