On the Tenth Day of Marmalade – Jars

For our #TenthDayofMarmalade we’re celebrating the humble jar – for as we all know at Christmas, wonderful things come in small packages. Not only would transporting your marmalade to us be a lot messier without them, but getting the right jar can help your marmalade stand out from the crowd. We love to see the [...]

As Paddington, everyone’s favourite marmalade-loving bear always says, every family should have a marmalade day. One of the nicest things about marmalade making is the way it provides the opportunity to take time out from the chaos (especially at this time of year!) and do something as a family.
