You may need to make notes here preserving people - and can I just say if you want some great jars and presents for Easter there is still time to order - make some Lemon Curd gifts maybe? Just sayin'
Ha! Out of time for that I am afraid - but these bargain offers still apply . . . .
This week I made some raspberry jam and used our new mini jar for the first time. I LOVE this jar - it is just 120 gms but looks a lot bigger, and best of all, it take an 063 lid so perfect for the Summer Frocks range. It makes a perfect gift - or wedding favour. Well priced too £36.96 for 140. Smaller box quantities coming soon.
Also taking an 063 lid is the new 290ml round.
We have this on offer at 28p per jar INCLUDING Summer Frocks lids!
So, just £17.88 for 64 jars with lids
These are going to be snapped up so make sure you don't miss out
Finally, in the new jar section a rather odd clearance jar that will be just perfect for somebody. It is large, at 440ml, faceted, with a double width facet on one face for labeling. It takes an 082 lid so we have it on offer with the red gingham lid at just £23.40 for 64 jars and lids!!! Great for pickles and chutneys.
As I said, a clearance jar - when they're gone they're gone.

We have a new initiative for you which, I admit, has taken me a while to think of. Apologies for that - you should have asked!!
If your a budding artisan or a super start-up it is a confusing world out there of jars, equipment, rules and regulations. Artisan Corner is where you will find really good advice, links to areas of this website and others that will help you find what you need quickly and easily. I have also put together a jar pack at a special price to get you started.
There is also our unique Label Designer Pro to help you get set up to print your own labels - print what you need, when you need it.
This is just the start - I will be adding to this page all the time so be sure to check back regularly or you can contact me if there is something specific you need answered. My e-book 'Rosie's Top Ten Tips for Taking Your Big Jam Hobby to the Next Level' quickly summarises the main stepping stones.

Finally, take a look at our new range of wooden utensils - all made here in the UK of quality materials (wood!) There are some lovely items, all well-priced including, what I like to call long-handled jam bats! I am using these in my work kitchen and they are delightfully brilliant. Strong, nice long handles to keep your hands away from the hot jam.
all prices correct at time of writing
Here, there and everywhere
This year, so far, has been super crammed with work and exciting in equal measure. I have been so quiet that you probably thought I had left the country - well I did! Several times.
I have been over to Dublin a couple of times, and to Los Angeles, all for work. I must say I have had my fill of watch/shoes/belt/laptop/phone/toiletries out in a tray in security, hopping about trying to get boots back on - you know how it is. Passport control in LA took over one and a half hours, waiting in a hot and stuffy warehouse-like building. When we finally got to a window ( three were open for a plane load of 550 ) we went through the hand prints, the bio-metrics, eye photography, handing over passports - in silence. The large African/American official in his border security uniform and guns was very intimidating as he looked from one to the other of us and back again. The absence of words became very uncomfortable and intimidating.
Finally he uttered these words, looking straight at Trev with penetrating eyes " Well now, what you done marryin' yoo-owl sista like that? We done that where I come from but you is from the U-nited Kingdom! Go on with you now and have a great time in the US of A"
Talk about wrung out!
We were in LA to launch the Jarcessorise Collections to an unsuspecting American population, which has started very promisingly. A bit of a way to go yet but all in all it was a fantastic trip. You can check out the portfolio website here
Next I shall be doing some short videos to put on the website to give you some more ideas for using the products.
