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.
