Here is the latest news from Gigi & Sons...
Two Winners of Great Taste Awards!
GIGI & SONS HAVE PRODUCED TWO GREAT TASTE AWARD 2017 WINNERS!
MULBERRY JAM AND JUJUBE & PLUM JAM
HAVE WON THE GUILD OF FINE FOODS GREAT TASTE AWARDS
Our artisan jams are full of super fruits that physicians have used over centuries to strengthen, energise and fortify body and mind. Our Vitality Preserves bring this ancient wisdom into the modern world.
The feedback from the Great Taste Award judges on our Mulberry Jam is that they liked its deep and dense colour and texture, with a nice firm consistency, and a lovely texture in the mouth. It has a delicate flavour with a lovely zesty lift. Perfect with scones, croissants and cheeses. Mulberry is even today marketed in China to improve the immune system, enhance general health and promote longevity.
The judges found the exotic Jujube Jam had a good texture, lots of flavour from the Jujube dates, with a lingering molasses finish. This Jam needs to be enjoyed dolloped onto porridge or sponge pudding! Also as an accompaniment to a good cheese! The Jujube dates were historically used and still are to improve digestion, increase energy and improve sleep.
