I approached the lovely folks at Raisthorpe Manor with an interest of sampling their jam and jelly’s, infused with alcohol. They kindly accepted and sent me three pots, Gooseberry Gin jam, Rhubarb Gin jam and Sloe Port Jelly.
So, this evening, we had family over for dinner and decided to try the Sloe Port jelly with our roast dinner.
Accompanied with nut roast, mashed potatoes, vegetables and Yorkshire puddings (how very British!), this jelly was superb. Truly.
With a cranberry sauce feel to it, this jelly was smooth, sweet but the port taste was evident but not too overpowering.
It brought a welcomed sweet taste to the meal and I will definitely be trying it with cheese and crackers as I think they’ll go perfectly together!
It was a huge hit with my family too, with only good words spoken about it around the dinner table.
I can’t wait to try the gin flavoured jams if this is anything to go by! I’m not surprised that this jelly has won taste awards.
I give this jelly a strong 5 out of 5 stars.
