Autumnal Temptations!

October 14, 2019


What’s in season?

There’s nothing quite like the autumnal taste of a freshly picked apple straight from the orchard. Harvesting your own home-grown strawberries or, picking cranberries and raspberries at your nearest ‘pick-your-own’. However, there’s a one small problem; all the aforementioned are only at their best during October. That’s great news if you’re reading this at the time of release, but what if it’s the middle of March?

Well, luckily for you, with all 21 of our St. Dalfour Preserves, the fruits you love are always available – letting you enjoy the tasty treats you love, all year round!

As it is October, here are some of the delicious delicacies you have to try! Not just this month, but every month!

Sweet Treats:

Apple & Cinnamon Crumble

With the recent launch of the New St. Dalfour Apple & Cinnamon, we thought we would come up with a beautifully simple recipe which shows off the great flavour of our Apple & Cinnamon Preserve, in our take on the traditional Apple & Cinnamon Crumble.

Apple Crumble is a staple dessert born in Britain. We truly believe, with the addition of our Apple & Cinnamon preserve, the humble crumble is taken to the next level and satisfies those cravings for seasonal spices!

Chocolate & Pear Tarts

Chocolate and pear is a classic combination, and these chocolate & pear jam tarts made with St Dalfour Imperial Pear Preserve are a sweet treat worth making! They’re entirely gluten free, vegan and refined sugar free but 100% scrumptious, with a rich chocolate tart and sweet pear filling these little homemade treats are every bit as delicious as any other jam tart but with none of the nasties.

Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins

These Raspberry & White Chocolate Muffins celebrate the universally adored combination of fruit and chocolate. With Raspberry season fast approaching, why not try something new and make these simple, yet delicious raspberry & white chocolate muffins!

Using our St. Dalfour Raspberry Preserve, you can enjoy the humble raspberry at its seasonal best all year round! The addition of the demerara sugar gives these delightful treats a subtle flavour of caramel sure to indulge your sweet tooth!

Savoury Delights:

Grilled Chicken with Pineapple & Mango Salsa

With October being Mango season, why not celebrate this delicious fruit with our grilled chicken with pineapple & mango salsa! This delicious treat is perfect for Autumn evenings as it can be enjoyed both inside and outdoors as the British weather takes unpredictable turns.

Cranberry & Blueberry Seafood Sauce

This sauce goes particularly well with prawns; it is also delicious with grilled salmon and, if you can indulge yourself, try it with crab and lobster. We love this sauce as the lemon compliments the tart sweetness of the berries. This is one simple Autumn favourite you simply have to try!

Seasonal fish:

Fish: salon, mullet, sea bream, sardine and tuna.
