Entering the World’s Original Marmalade Awards for the fifth year running, Crossogue Preserves has now notched up an impressive 32 accolades, winning yet another seven prizes this year. The awards were founded in 2005 by Jane Hasell-McCosh with the initial idea of preserving, growing and widening one of the most British of customs – making marmalade. They have gone on to generate an international following, inspiring people from all over the world to get involved, including the Tipperary based artisan preserve producer, Veronica Molloy and her committed team of preserve makers.
This years’ winning marmalades made lovingly in small batches using the open pan method are Crossogue Preserves’ Mixed Citrus Marmalade, Seville Marmalade, Seville Orange Marmalade winning in two separate categories, Tangerine Marmalade, Lemon and Limoncello Marmalade and Orange, Damson and Cardamon Marmalade. With such a variety of victorious pots, Paddington Bear could have a different one in his sandwiches for every day of the week!
With more then 20,000 entries, the triumphant marmalades are on display at the festival on the 17th and 18thMarch at Dalemain Mansion and Penrith town centre in Cumbria. The organisers of the marmalade festival have commended Veronica by saying, “Thank you for entering your marmalades into the Awards. You really are a “World Class Marmalade Maker!” Florence & the Dalemain Marmalade Team
Commenting on the incredible result, Veronica Molloy, Founder and Owner of Crossogue Preserves says, “Receiving prizes for seven of our artisan marmalades is a record result, we are delighted to have gained such recognition. My team works very hard and winning awards such as the World’s Original Marmalade Awards both encourages and inspires them to keep creating delicious mouth-watering marmalade.”
