Thursday Cottage Lemon Curd
Jules & Sharpie Hot Pear Chutney
Jules & Sharpie Hot Pepper Jelly
Thursday Cottage Gooseberry Jam with Elderflower
National Trust Blackcurrant Curd
Thursday Cottage Passion Fruit Curd
This makes a total of 20 awards in the last five years. In 2010, our Damson Coulis was awarded three gold stars and was named as the Best Regional Speciality Product in East Anglia and the Midlands.
The Damsons we use are the Shropshire Prune and perhaps the product is best summed up by one of the judges comments "These guys know their damsons!"

2013 - a glorious year - our 50th Birthday
Thursday Cottage was started exactly 50 years ago in 1963 and we will be celebrating our Birthday all year. From humble beginnings in a thatched cottage in Somerset making a tiny range of preserves, we now make hundreds of different products for a wide range of customers, both at home and abroad. Thankfully some things don't change and we still cook in small batches and handfill our jams and marmalades.Read more...
