The Blaisdon Red Plum Jam is a very special jam that is made with hand picked heritage fruit from ancient, unsprayed, orchards in Blaisdon in the Forest of Dean.

Years ago Blaisdon orchards were plentiful, with growers supplying Sullivans jam factory in Guiting Power. The Blaisdon was loved for its rich red colour and high natural pectin content and the factory van drove around the orchards in fruit season collecting tons of this wonderful fruit. The factory eventually closed its doors and the Blaisdons were no longer in fashion and surplus to requirement. Over the years the orchards have declined with Blaisdon trees not being replanted.

Sarah from the Artisan Kitchen has been working with The Gloucestershire Orchard Trust to locate these rare plums and produce this local heritage jam one again.

Not only was Blaisdon Red Plum Jam awarded three gold stars at the Great Taste Awards 2014, it was also voted one of the Great Taste Top 50! Here are some of judges' the comments
Lovely deep ruby colour and sheen, a good set, and fruity aroma. A delicious jam with deep dark flavours and a hint of tartness.
Nice to find a jam that tastes of fruit not sugar.
It was very well cooked, the aroma was fresh. A jam with a variety of uses.
This is an old fashioned fruit jam, the plum comes through uncluttered with additives or over powering sugar.
Flies the flag for doing the simple things very, very well.
There's a lovely set to this jam and the plum flavours carry great balancing acidity and tartness.
A well made jam with a distinct, pronounced plum flavour.

Also awarded a gold star at the Great Taste Awards 2017 and two gold stars in 2018.
