This was delicious a treacly texture with a molasses flavour that keeps on flavour that keeps on giving. Wide application for this, ice cream, apple pie with a dollop of cream and this drizzled through, also great as a chicken and pork marinade or glaze.
A rich dark and sumptuous spread. Rich and decadent. Balanced spice, sweetness, tartness and with a great texture – like super concentrated stewed apple. This is wonderfully rich and glossy. We go back for more and more. Delicious and such an honest, well made apple preserve. Natural tannins too.
This is an amazingly rich shiny viscous butter with a deep brown appearance. The intense and complex flavours are delicious with the spices complementing the apple notes. This is a versatile and incredible product.
This is fabulous, so intense, fruity, complex and with such a brilliant glossy sticky colour. We love this and spent several happy minutes imagining what we could do with it. It reminded us of an old fashioned baked apple pudding when the sugar, butter and apple caramelises at the bottom of the dish. Lovely, beautifully made.
Deep dark luscious colour, with intense burnt but smooth treacle flavour with rounded apple notes, omg what an amazing product. Delicious and so well made.
