New boxed products from specialist in relishes
Passion Preserved, an award-winning local producer of savoury jellies, preserves, relishes and chutneys, has created a range of boxes for convenience home catering.
The company, which is owned by Claire Kelly and is based near Lisburn, has grouped its extensive range of products into boxes for existing and new customers in the UK, Republic of Ireland and the Middle East. The range of boxes include ‘Hot’ (spicy), ‘Cheese’ (cheeseboard accompaniments), ‘Party’ (for easy entertaining) and ‘Taster’ which enables shoppers to select their own three jars as a bespoke gift. A ‘Limited Edition’ box is also available featuring products selected by Kelly.
The small company has won a series of UK Great Taste awards for its range of hand-crafted products which are made from ingredients grown by Kelly in her own small holding. She grows a number of ingredients including chillis in her own poly tunnel. “I decided to pull all my products together in formats that would make it easier for customers to use for their specific requirements such as, for instance, with a cheeseboard or to accompany spicy meals such as a curry,” she said. “The boxes provide guidance on how to best to use the products for meals or snacks. They are also designed as ideal gifts.”
Claire Kelly gave up a successful career as a chartered accountant and business adviser to pursue a passion in food production, creating her own recipes for jellies, relishes and chutneys including the spicy Kasundi Indian inspired relish, Watermelon Rind Pickle, Savoury Watermelon Jam, Spiced Damson Jelly, Vampire Jelly Sunshine Relish. Customers include Fortnum and Mason in London and Saveco in Kuwait City.
