Masham based Rosebud Preserves have released their latest range of seasonal rhubarb preserves.
Made using forced Yorkshire rhubarb from grower David Westwood & Son, sixth generation growers based in the Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle near Wakefield, the fruit is held in high esteem for its beautiful colour and subtle flavour and its palate cleansing mix of acidity and sweetness.
Rosebud Preserves founder and owner Elspeth Biltoft said: “Spring is just around the corner and we can never have longed for it more! This is exactly the time to enjoy the new season forced rhubarb supplied to us from the ‘Yorkshire Triangle’, an area close to Wakefield and famous for this beautiful and unique plant.
“Beloved by chefs for its naturally sweet, deliciously floral, outrageously pink and tender stems, it makes a lovely simple compote, crumble or accompaniment to mackerel and equally delicious light, bright and super fresh jams, when combined with the exotic warmth of stem ginger or the tangy citrus of ripe dessert orange and will make a welcome addition to your breakfast or tea table.”
The family run company have been making its award-winning range of jams, marmalades, chutneys and jellies at Healey in North Yorkshire since 1989 and have continued to focus on using locally sourced produce wherever possible as well as traditional recipes and techniques throughout their range.
Now stocked in some of the country’s most prestigious retailers including Whole Foods Market, Neal’s Yard Dairy and the Castle Howard Estate their products are also served in top hotels throughout the UK including The Cowarth Park Hotel in Ascot and the team have been exporting their quintessentially Yorkshire products to America since 1992.
The new season jams include Yorkshire Rhubarb & Ginger and Yorkshire Rhubarb & Orange and are available to buy online at www.rosebudpreserves.co.uk and at independent retailers throughout the region.
