Old Rectory Preserves - Marmalade & Relish
Old Rectory Preserves began in 2014, after former Master Chef finalist Annabel Anderson moved to Carleton Rode in Norfolk and found that her new house’s kitchen garden and orchard yielded more fruit than she could eat. Annabel began experimenting with preserving the glut, and friends quickly encouraged her to start a business.
Old Rectory Preserves won multi-awards in the last few years including 9 Great Taste Award & 10 Artisan Marmalade Maker Awards.
Her range of jams and preserves marries classic fruits with herbs and aromatics. The majority of the produce used is grown at the Old Rectory, and Annabel is especially enthusiastic about cultivating heritage varieties.
Traditional methods are used to create small batches, resulting in limited-edition flavours depending on what is in season.
