Jams, coulis, chutneys ...
Jjaras jams, coulis, chutneys and tomato pureés are all made with seasonally grown farm fresh fruit and vegetables. They do not contain artificial colours, preservatives, flavourings or added salt.
As we use fresh seasonal produce in all our preserves, this sometimes means that some products are unavailable at certain times throughout the year.
This is because if fruits and vegetables are not in season then we won’t make the preserve. We prefer to wait until they are in season ensuring that everything that goes into our preserves is as fresh and pure as possible.
Jjaras makes different kinds of jams. You need to be quick though, as we sometimes run out and can’t make anymore until the next season. Types include raspberry, blackberry, fig, mixed berry and plum.
Jjaras prides itself on making unique coulis with a chunky consistency due to it’s high concentration of real fruit. We ensure that if you want blueberries or raspberries in your coulis, then that’s what you get!
Due to the high fruit content, our coulis requires a vigorous shake before each use. Drizzle them over pancakes, ice cream or cakes, or mix into plain yoghurt for a special treat. Jjaras specialises in rapberry and boysenberry coulis.
Jjaras chutneys are made in season when the produce that goes into them can be picked fresh. Please be aware that we can run out of a particular type of chutney as we don’t make more until the next season. Jjaras range of chutneys includes tomato chutney, spicy tomato chutney, apple chutney and apple mint chutney.
Jjaras tomato pureé is made using a traditional Italian method. It is a simple tomato passata that can be used as a great base for any sauce.
We make our pureé thick. The only added ingredient is a basil leaf, as tradition demands. Otherwise, our pureé is made from seasonal produce with no preservatives or additives such as salt or sugar. Our method ensures it will last unopened in your cupboard or cellar for years.
