SuperJam


SuperJam™ is a range of 100% pure fruit jams; sweetened with grape juice and made using Super Fruits, such as blueberries and cranberries. The brand was created by Scottish jam-maker Fraser Doherty, after being taught to make jam using his Gran’s secret recipes at the age of fourteen.  Little did she know what she had started!

From humble beginnings making the jams from his parents home in Edinburgh, the company has gone on to sell millions of jars, has won a variety of awards and is even exhibited in the National Museum of Scotland as an example of an ‘Iconic Scottish Food Brand’. SuperJam is now available in supermarkets throughout the UK and Fraser has just broken into his 6th international market, Russia!

I was kindly sent three jars to sample (Strawberry, Raspberry & Cranberry and Blueberry & Blackcurrant) and what better way to try the jam than as part of a traditional Cornish Cream Tea. We used the strawberry jam for this and it was delicious - fruity, not too sweet and great for spreading on scones!


Tonight I will be trying a microwave jam sponge pudding with the rest of the strawberry jam and the kids and I will be making jam tarts at the weekend with the blueberry and blackcurrant. I will blog the results soon.

Another unique and quite lovely element of the SuperJam brand that I really want to highlight is the increasingly popular SuperJam Tea Parties - free tea parties held all over the UK for elderly people who live alone or in care. SuperJam are currently looking for more volunteers to help organise and host one of these tea parties, especially during the colder winter months. If you think you might like to help please contact nell@superjam.co.uk

Thank-you Superjam!

  3. I love the name super-jam, sounds so cute and fun!

    A great idea too for the parties, I work primarily with geratric patients and they are often very lonely, bringing a little cheer into their lives is priceless.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
