Moor… Moor ….. Moor…



Or should that be sun, sun, sun. Think the only person who is happy with the weather is Gene Kelly.You may well ask what on earth those Special Preserve girls have been doing. Lots of busy markets and a few new ones as well. 

Last week Heaton Moor was treated to a double serving of Special Preserves. The monthly farmers market on the first Saturday of every month and then on Sunday at the fantastic Heaton Moor Summer Festival, where the sun did shine,Yippee! Penny managed to indulge herself at Eternal Envy boutique with something for a night out. Sarah’s indulgence came in the form of Lemon Drizzle Pudding from Glamour Puds.

 Sarah and Penny both made a fantastic debut at the new Middlewich Artisan Market held on the last Saturday every month. The sun was out in the morning and so were the maracas and mexican hats. Their NBF was Tony who owns the scrumptious Chimichangoes, the margaritas were divine. It did chucked it down in the afternoon, but hey it wouldn’t be England with out a downpour. Their new pink grapefruit marmalade was sold out by noon.

A trip to Tatton Brewery was needed to stock up on  Tatton Ale, which is now used in the girls Apple & Ale Chutney.  They could have stayed there all day but had to dash home to make even more of the Lemon Marmalade and Red Onion Chutney. The red currants are picked and will be in the jam pan very soon.

The orders from delis have been flooding in and they have been jamming with Chilli.

Just a quick thank you to Jill Kimber who gave over her garden to host a very successful pudding & pimms evening to raise funds for charity. They were queuing to get it.  Also, Gill Singh who was voted one of the top one hundred ladies in the transport and travel industry. This all took place at the rather posh, Dorchester in London. No Travel Lodge for Gill then, but she sure is an asset for girl power.

This coming Saturday Special Preserves can been found at the Wilmslow Artisan Market and Chorlton Producers Market. Follow them on twitter @specialpreserve. Pop down and say hello, they would love to meet you.
