The Homemade Marmalade Awards – 2021 Best in Show announced!


Thank you to everyone who sent a jar of marmalade into this year’s competition. Despite coronavirus restrictions, postal delays and winter storms, we received thousands of entries from all over the world! We were delighted to announce our winners at the Plant Fair on Sunday 20th June, when our 2021 Best in Show was revealed to be 9 year old Flora Rider, for her Seville Orange Marmalade with Orange Blossom! Huge congratulations to Flora, and to all of our winners.

The full list of 2021 winners can be found HERE.

Flora’s Award-winning marmalade has been co-branded by Dalemain and Fortnum & Mason, and faithfully reproduced by Thursday Cottage. You can buy it online HERE, alongside a selection of Artisan Gold winners. Flora’s marmalade can also be purchased from Dalemain Tearooms, and Fortnum & Mason stores in both the UK and Hong Kong.

For more information about the winners of the 2021 Marmalade Awards, you can read our blog post HERE.

Thank you to every entrant, and we hope to see your jars again in 2022. We have posted out all certificates and mark cards, and we ask for your patience as the post can be slow at present, especially for international shipments.

About the Homemade Awards

The Homemade Marmalade Awards are a competition for amateur marmalade makers, which aims to find the very best homemade marmalade maker in the world, while raising lots of money for Hospice at Home along the way!

The Homemade Awards have always been the heart of the Dalemain Awards, and every year we receive entries from all over the world, including Australia, Lebanon, Brazil and Canada to name but a few! We always have lots of exciting categories and extra competitions, to ensure that there is something for every marmalade maker, from expert home-cook to adventurous first-timer.

Entering the competition

All Homemade entries are judged by our wonderful WI judges and the full £10 entry fee goes directly to palliative care charities; so far we have raised over £250,000 for hospice care and with your help we hope to raise even more.
