Fear not, I havn't traded Helen in for the dubious charms of Linda Lusardi (does that show my age?).
Noooo, buoyed by the inspiration of her recent marmalade course Helen returned from our trip to St Lucia all fired up to submit entries to the 2014 Marmalade Awards. This is sort of the Marmalade Oscars which is held each year, soon after the Seville Orange season is over.
Helen was delighted to win not only a Bronze award for the Lime Marmalade with Medlar Vodka, but she also scooped Gold with her fantastic Lemon and Lavender Marmalade.
All exciting stuff which has attracted press interest and of course a clutch of orders for this bittersweet nectar. If you like marmalade which as a bit special, why not buy a three pack from Wild Side Preserves which includes the two award winners for the "interesting additions" category plus a straight classic Seville Marmalade.
