Topping our best selling list for the second year running Queens Park Preserves Chilli jam has proved to again be the most popular product with our customers. In fighting off strong competition at the top of the charts from both our Hot Spicy Onion chutney and the sublime Blackberry & Sloe Gin jam this perennial favourite has shown itself to be a real winner. Made from a combination of fresh and dried chilli, red bell peppers and smoked paprika this wonderful condiment is proving highly addictive! It was originally launched at the 2012 Stratford Food Festival and proved an instant hit. The versatility of Chilli jam means it can be used in a huge variety of ways. These include being used as a glaze on salmon or chicken or as an addition to soups or pasta dishes. Why not try it as a dip or as an accompaniment to a wide variety of cheese. Lunchtime sandwiches are brought alive by its depth of flavour and warmth. And with the summer approaching and the weather beginning to change for the better, don’t forget to keep a jar at the ready for the barbecue season!
It will be very interesting to see if Chilli jam remains at the top of the Queens Park Preserves best seller list in 2014/15 in the face of even stronger competition from two of our newest products, the indulgent Pear and Chocolate jam and the wonderful Red Onion and Balsamic chutney. These two have been very popular from their launch in Febraury 2014 and are already producing strong sales. Ultimately only you can decide but we have a feeling it will be a very close call indeed! Keep an eye on the latest updates as the year moves on.
