Details

This is a cheese accompaniment made with apples and fresh chillies. Despite being known as fruit cheese it is not actually a cheese, but a concentrated, sliceable fruit preserve which makes the perfect partner for cheese, especially the softer creamy types such as Brie. It is also delicious with all types of cold meats.

We use Bramley apples which we cook and then sieve to a fine, smooth puree. After this we gently cook a small batch of puree with sugar, lemon juice and a dash of chilli, hand-stirring all the while in the traditional way. It is a long process but results in an intense concentration of flavour and a glossy, set preserve with the combination of sweetness and tartness typical of Bramley apples followed by the warmth of the chilli. We use English grown Scotch Bonnet chillies which give a fruity flavour and a moderate heat (in the quantity used here.)

As well as delivering top-quality flavour we are passionate about being as environmentally friendly as possible by reducing wasted food and championing locally-grown produce. All the fruit we use is grown locally and as much as possible is top-quality surplus produce which would otherwise waste for lack of an outlet.

We are thrilled that our apple chilli fruit cheese won a star in the 2018 Great Taste Awards.” We enjoyed the initial fresh taste of apple and the combination with the warmth of the chilli that followed.” Great Taste Award judges, 2018
