Once the carrots have been hand-harvested from our land, they are washed and cleaned thoroughly. They are then chopped and placed in a pan of water, with sugar, lemon juice and lemon rind and boiled until the carrots have softened. The water is
then drained and the carrots are left to cool. Once cooled, they are blended. The mixture is then heated until it has thickened. When the required consistency is achieved, the mixture is cooled and transferred in to jars. Our unique carrot jam is an excellent accompaniment to hard cheese, on toast, in tarts and with cold meat and salami.
