Being an avid Instagram addict I was merrily scrolling away and something happened to catch my eye. A post about Jam! However, this wasn’t just any Jam. On closer inspection this was GIN JAM. Gin in Jam! That’s right! Oh my days!
The post was by a company called Larkin’s Larder who are based in Bedfordshire and make some wonderful preserves. Scrolling through their website I have found, oh, about 26 different ones I want to try, but at this moment the focus is all about the Jam with the Gin in.
I just had to get my hands on some and try it out. I immediately ordered myself a little Gin Jam set from their Cocktail Lounge range which consisted of 3 flavoured jams; Plum and Sloe Gin, Raspberry Fizz and Gooseberry Fizz.
Once they arrived, I got home from work and ended up having toast for tea just so I could try them out! I’m quite excitable you see and didn’t want to wait until breakfast time. Plus as I am always in such a rush on a morning, I knew I would end up forgetting about them.
I tried the Raspberry Fizz one first! It was delicate, sweet and very tasty!
I would definitely buy more of these and I think they would be a good buy for restaurants and cafe’s that promote ‘Afternoon Tea’. You could do a Gin Afternoon Tea and these little Gin Jams would go down a storm. You could make Gin Jam Tarts too! I am getting carried away with my bit self now! 😂😂
Now then, I wonder if they do Gin Infused Lemon Curd…….? That would be heaven!
