Ouse Valley Foods - Green Chilli Jelly

On a trip out for lunch in a The Railway Carriage Cafe we had a look around the now expanded Trading Post Farm Shop as they oftern have interesting product from local suppliers to try, this trip I picked up from Green Chilli Jelly from Ouse Valley Foods.

Ouse Vally Foods started in 2004 by Julian Warrender when he made and sold a fresh Hollandaise Sauce, they soon expanded in to Jellies, Chutneys, conserves and marmalades, based in Plumpton Green near Lewes, they try to use locally sources ingredients add no artificial ingredients, and manufacture in small batches – sounds idilic..

The jelly looks great, it is beautifully clear with the rings of sliced chillies and seeds suspended through out.on openiong the jar the smell reminds me a little of a cayenne, with that slightly peppery overtone, the contents has set well, and this is a definate condiment style jelly, it is more sweet than hot and maybe just a little disapointing mild after seeing all the chilli rings suspended in the jelly.

Ingredients: Chilli, Apple, Sugar, Water, Malt Vinegar.

But having said that, I suspect it would go down a storm in a normal family, maybe used a bit like a Mint Jelly, which I also find a little to sweet, maybe used with roast lamb, or even better with cold lamb sandwiches where the sweetness would really benefit.

I think my only real disapointment with products like this is I would like to know which chilli variety was used, and to have a little more information about the products development etc etc either on the jar or website, while the jar looks minimalist with its tiny lablel on the side, there are two other lables on the top and the bottom.

At £3.70 per jar it is not expensive, but it is not for me.. on the other hand the grilled goats cheese served on a home made red onion marmalade pitta, with a selection of fresh salads in The Railway Carriage Cafe was excellent.
