Jams and Preserves
We have hundreds of Jams, Sauces and Jellies ready to be bought and consumed. Many new flavours such as Apple & Passionfruit Jam and a Tropical Jam have been made. There is also homemade BBQ sauce available and limited number Tomato Pasta Sauce. For the first time, we have also obtained from an extended CHAC Family, Withcott Honey. All items have been made with fresh ingredients sourced locally to help our local community.
