Review : Nanny Violet's Jams

Nanny Violet's Jams is home to some seriously cute traditional handmade jars of jams and chutneys. I received a gift set of five* to admire, taste and review; carry on reading to find out what I thought and to see just how beautiful the packaging is.

When ordering my set I was asked my favourite colours and if I liked sweet or savoury to which I replied pastels such as mint green & pale pink and preferably sweet, but a mixture if possible. What turned up was pretty spot on, I honestly couldn't have picked a design or flavours more suitable to myself if I tried!

Spencer and I have enjoyed trying out the different flavours and have actually shocked ourselves by just how much we like some of them. I always reach for strawberry when buying jam and don't tend to stray away from it at all, while the strawberry in this range was beautiful the other flavours were too. The orange whisky was actually one of my favourites, tying with good old strawberry.

Nanny Violet's Jams are handmade in the Royal Forest of Dean, a family company using authentic recipes that have been handed down throughout the generations. As you may have guessed, the creators of the brand are Nanny Violet's (who has recently turned 100!) grandchildren.

Nanny Violet's jams and chutneys are all natural, gluten free, dairy free and suitable for vegans. 

These make for an amazing gift, in fact I'm about to enquire about purchasing a gift set for my dad for Father's Day, I know for sure that he will love the orange whisky flavour!
