New Deli / Gifts: Jersey Black Butter
Made by the Le Mare Wine Estate, it's recipe is the product of ten years perfecting
Jersey Black Butter has a strong provenance with the island of Jersey and is made using a traditional Jersey recipe, without any artificial additives. Peeled and cored
apples are cooked down with black treacle, liquorice, cider, brown sugar and spices. This is then cooked slowly over an open gas flame, stirring continuously for several hours. The Black Butter is then blended to a smooth consistency and potted. The jammy conserve is a perfect
breakfast/snack accompaniment in its own right, as a condiment and also can be used as an ingredient in a wide range of recipes, for both sweet and savoury dishes
Spread it over freshly baked bread, scones with cream or on toast. It is perfect to use instead of Jam for a premium ‘Jersey Cream Tea’ experience.
