Our preserves are traditional besause: * We use old-time recipes Our products are prepared using recipes dating back to the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries. Therefore, you will be hard pressed to find any artificial additives such as preservatives, emulsifiers, colour additives, artificial flavours and other enhancers in our products. * Fresh ingredients and traditional additives Our preserves are prepared with fresh hand-sorted fruit, vegetables and spices with natural additives, such as sugar and vinegar, with no artificial additives. * Simple production methods Our food processing methods are as simple as they come, mostly done by hand, and similar to those used at homesteads in centuries past. We do not use complicated technology, which allows us to preserve the properties and nutrients of fresh fruit and vegetables. The produce we use is sourced from local farms. Growing various fruit and vegetables is made easier by our region's climate, plentiful sunshine, varied soil and farming traditions dating back to the Middle Ages. Thus, our resources are fresh and perfect, and form an ideal base for making excellent food products.
