The first thing that happens at Well Preserved stand, is your mouth starts to water, the taste buds get fidgety and your hand automatically reaches to sample one of the Well Preserved chutneys or jams. You are not sure what you are going to get hit with: a sudden sense of minty flavour with the tingling floating from your tongue into the nerve cells in your toes; or a blast of Indian lemony goodness making your brain do a bit of a metaphorical topsy turvy while your body melts into lemon-land filled with goodness of mustard and curry leaves.
Simply put, want a sweet spot or hot spot in your life? Try Well Preserved’s chutneys, jams and pickles and you won’t be disappointed.
Well Preserved is owned by Keren Bobker and Jennie Bishop who have been friends for many years. In Keren’s words, “A mutual interest in making preserves of all types eventually led to setting up Well Preserved in the summer of 2011 with a view ot selling via the ARTE markets. We both have full time jobs and many other interests so we describe Well Preserved as ‘a hobby that got out of hand’!”
“We make everything by hand, at home, trying to use seasonal ingredents and local ones where possible too. We do not use any additives or chemical preservatives.”
