Blackcurrant Curd 312g - Tiptree


Blackcurrant Curd 312g


During World War II citrus fruit became hard to get hold of. That was when our love affair with vitamin C-rich blackcurrants began. In the hands of Tiptree’s talented chefs, these explosive little berries make a wonderful Blackcurrant Curd. Rich, tangy, sharp and unctuous; this is stunning spread for freshly baked bread and crumpets. Alternatively, use it to make a blackcurrant cheesecake or gently warm it and drizzle it over ice cream, pancakes and waffles.

The Wilkin family started fruit farming in the Essex village of Tiptree in 1865. To prevent the produce from spoiling on long journeys, they started turning it into jam in 1885. Wilkin & Sons Limited began to expand from just making ‘conserve’ using homegrown fruit, to also crafting ‘preserve’ using imported fruit. Now a Royal Warrant holder supplying preserves, puddings and tea to The Queen, Wilkin & Sons and the Tiptree jams created at their Trewlands factory are world famous.

Keenly aware of the impact of the climate emergency, Tiptree has also become a market leader environmentally, reducing their chemical use by 80% and plastic in their packaging, planting thousands of non-fruit trees and hedgerows, and even becoming a Demonstration Farm for LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming).
