Welcome to Ajar Of
Here at Ajar Of I have been making jams, marmalades, chutneys and other condiments for over five years ever since I made my first bath of blueberry Thrill Jam and aubergine Chutney.
Both products were inspired by my husband in some way…the Blueberry Thrill jam acquired the ‘thrill’ when he asked me what I was cooking, when told he then sang all day ‘I found my thrill on Blueberry Hill’. The Aubergine chutney was made because we liked a chutney with our curry, so hubby tasked me to take on Pataks!
Locally sourced ingredients
Jams & Marmalades
I love the Seville orange season in January and February, the smell of the Sevilles imported directly from Spain to make the most marvellous bittersweet marmalade loved by all!
February heralds the gloriously pink forced rhubarb from the rhubarb triangle in Yorkshire..making the most delicious Rhubarb and ginger jam.
Chutney & Sauces
With Chutneys being so packed with flavour I try to think of other ways of using them other than with cheese! So Chutters for Cheese is ideal with any cheese, but is also fabulous with Pate, Gooseberry Chutney, again great with soft cheeses comes into its own with smoked mackerel or hot smoked salmon…
I love my range of Pasta sauces and Table sauces, all have been made using little or no sugar and taste of the ripened tomatoes, plums, dried fruits, vegetables, chillies and spices that go into them…a tasty way to make or add to a meal.
