Summer Berries

20 August 2013 Posted by admin

We are now well into August and with another spell of hot weather expected we are having a bumper season of summer fruits: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, elderberries, gooseberries, Tayberries, loganberries and blackberries still to ripen.

Not only do summer berries taste delicious they are also extremely good for us too, packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. They not only make ideal snacks but scrumptious jams, jellies and cordials.

We are fortunate in Devon to have a huge range of artisan producers making a diverse variety of preserves, they make wonderful presents for all sorts of occasions birthdays, anniversaries, housewarming gifts or if you are stuck for an idea and not really sure what gift to buy someone.

We have a readymade Devon preserves hamper simply called Devon Preserves Hamper beautifully presented in a rustic wicker gift basket; we think anyone would be thrilled to receive.

You might know who the gift is for and would like to pick their favourite jams yourself and pop in some accompanying treats as well, our Devonshire Farmhouse Clotted Cream and scones springs to mind!  Just click on this link Create your own Hamper and start shopping, once you have chosen your gift hamper we will gift wrap it for you and send it to your recipient with your personal message.
