Limited Edition Crab Apple & Chilli Jelly

Our Crab Apple & Chillie Jelly was quite a hit at yesterday's Stirling NeighbourFood's taster event. As well as connecting with our customers and finding new ones it's great to meet fellow producers. It was so good to meet Clement from Langoustine the box and taste his delicious langoustines with our Crab Apple & Chillie Jelly. We will certainly be trying that combination again in the new year. #localfood

Red chillies beat indigestion and ulcers

This interesting article from the Daily Record was passed on to us by a familiy member.  Another great reason to buy Foragers Chillies.  We've found that many people equate chillies with "painful" heat in the mouth.  THERE ARE MILDER VARIERIES AVAILABLE!  At Foragers our main chilli is Palivec which is mild - medium.  We like our chillies to enhance your culinary creations not overpower them.
