Kim, our head chef, takes great pride in preparing Lawson’s range of chutneys and preserves so we were thrilled that our Chilli Jam picked up a Gold Star in the Guild of Fine Food’s prestigious Great Taste Awards 2017. This Gold Star is proof from the experts that our Chilli Jam tastes great!
The annual Great Taste Awards are seen as the benchmark for fine food and drink. Gold Stars are highly coveted with over 12,000 entries and only 35% winning one or more star. The judging panel is made up of professional chefs, food writers and other experts who scrutinise each product in blind-tastes tests before reaching their decisions.
Judges described Lawson’s Chilli Jam as: “a really well-balanced chilli jam. Not too hot or too sweet. The jam has a lovely looking colour and the texture and flavour of the tomato works nicely.”
We think the jam tastes good with everything! It is really versatile but here are some of our favourite ways to enjoy it. It is delicious on a cheese board particular with a strong cheese such as Montgomery's Cheddar, or as topping for a baked potato or cheese toasties. It can be stirred into soups to add a bit of fire or used to liven up a burger or steak baguette.
We hope you will try our Chilli Jam for yourself and agree with the judges!
