Here is to summer! Bon appetite!

Remember those bags full of colour, and flavour, and shapes in the summer… We discovered the Lemon Basil, by accident, but it was an all times favourite with customers, it stayed for ever in water and it filled the rooms, the pots and the mouth with flavour and coolness.

We could not have enough of it! We could not let it go! So, we invested in a freezer, a couple of pieces of equipment, and along with the thick and dark-coloured Quondro tomato pulp, we set off to a new adventure – preserving the summer for you. In cooking sauces, passata, dips, pestos and sweet chilli sauces.

We are still a long way away from a full production line, but this season we are testing the market, and are offering a few products, for you to cook with, taste, and offer us your feedback.

All are available in limited amount, and can be ordered as Extras, along with tour veg and fruit, by email. Deliveries on Thursdays, as usual.

      Dear Jane, we shall start making new sauces once the cooking tomatoes are ready, which will be in August-early September. We should have enough tomato pulp to keep us going through winter. Depending on new packaging and recipes, prices will vary between £1.50 and £3.50
