Sheffield hampers by PJ taste get a revamp

Our gift hampers now feature the really rather excellent "Spinning John" a lovely dry artisan cider made at Woodthorpe Hall.  Dick Shepley whose family have lived at the manor house since 1929 hand-makes the cider every October in the houses's historic cider press. Using local apples it truely is an artisan product.

Alongside Dick's cider our hampers feature a variety of other local products as well our own PJ taste produce.  Increasingly we are harvesting soft fruit, apples, herbs and salads from our own 2 acre plot as well as honey from our growing apiary.  Featured in the hamper above is "Crucible Best" from Sheffield Brewery, excellent coffee roasted by Frazer, Sheffield Honey, Henderson's Relish and our chill chocolate (made with chillies grown by John - the "J" in PJ taste.  

This bespoke hamper is ideally for gifts, birthdays or any occasion where you simply want to celebrate local produce.  Priced at just 35 pounds we can post at additional cost or deliver potentially for free in Sheffield.  For more hamper options please see this page.

Postscript:  the Shepley family suffered a series of tragic losses during the war - there is an interesting account of this history here.

Sheffield Favourites Hamper

We are really excited about the re-launch of our Sheffield Favourites hamper.  It really reflects our dedication to local sourcing as well as containing lots of ingredients grown with our own fair hands.  So what do you get?

The truffles are made from premium Callebaut chocolate which we have filled with a fruit chocolate ganache made produce we have grown or foraged this year.  We have Sheffield cherries with some of our Cherry Vodka (for added whoosh) and a strawberry centre finished with a dehydrated strawberry piece. 

The raspberry jam was the result of a brilliant and very tasty harverst of raspberries from the allotment - helped this year by actually getting round to pruning back severley last year!

I loved seeing the heritage tomatoes growing at Whirlowhall Farm Trust and was inspired to make a tasty tomato chuntney to preserve the pleasure deeper into this year and next.

The Blossom Honey from the Sheffield Honey Company has long been a favourite of ours and its good to know that the nectar involved somes from within the City boundary!

It has to be Hendos so you will find the iconic Sheffield Henderson's Relish also in the box. 

A new find for us is the Birdhouse Tea Company who blend a range of really exciting teas - we have chosen Full Monty which contains in tes speak, "small orthodox teas from Assam and Kenya".  What I do know is that is makes a reight good brew.

So all in all a great taste of Sheffield - indulge or give away as a lovely gift.  The cost is £23.95 and we have postage options but if you are in Sheffield do call and we may be able to deliver for FREE!!
