Our range of specialty preserves and brandies will delight your taste buds and create many successful dishes. Everything has been hand-made in our commercial kitchen and is free of preservatives and artificial ingredients.

All our products are released only after extensive trialling including feedback from people working in the food industry.

Our prunes deserve a special mention, as we have chosen varieties that differ from the commonly available imported ones. The choice of these has evolved from 10 years of horticultural research as to flavour and best use in different processing streams.

The following products are part of our standard range available any time. We welcome wholesale and retail enquiries, as well as enquiries about customised modifications to our standard products for large orders.

Red Wine Prunes

Prunes macerated in red wine add a special touch to a range of savoury dishes and desserts. The prunes’ sweet and fruity flavours, and a hint of bitter almond from the resident stones complement the slightly dry wine to create a well-rounded taste sensation. Red Wine Prunes are delicious with ice cream or vanilla sauce – a dessert easy to prepare and sure to please. You may add them to fruit salad or a cheese platter for that special touch, or serve them with game dishes and pan-fried fish.

Pruneaux – Prunes in Brandy

Pruneaux are whole prunes macerated in prune brandy and are a version of a traditional condiment used in the cuisine of southern France; there they are being enjoyed in a wide range of sweet and savoury dishes.  The prunes’ natural sweetness transforms the brandy into a mellow liqueur and goes well with ice cream, vanilla sauce or pavlova, or may be enjoyed as a treat simply on its own.

Chestnut Puree

Our Sweet Chestnut Puree has been inspired by French and Swiss recipes, but contains less sugar than its European cousins and as such brings out the unique chestnut flavour more prominently.
It lends itself to many uses: flavoured with vanilla it makes a superb ingredient for mousses, parfaits, cakes and other desserts, or as an accompaniment to ice cream or cream.
Unflavoured and unsweetened it can be used in soups, sweet and savoury baking, spreads, stuffing in game dishes, or as ingredients for vegetarian menus or desserts.
Because of their limited shelf life (all our products are free of preservatives), chestnut puree is only sold frozen.

Pure chestnut puree
Available in 1000ml (frozen) RRP $49.35
