Another prize at preserves festival

Award-winning marmalade maker Lynne Allan, who runs Lady Waterford Preserves as part of the Old Dairy Concept Store in Ford, won a bronze award in The World’s Original Marmalade Competition, which was held in Cumbria at the weekend.

She went back in history 500 years to create a special Flodden marmalade to commemorate the famous 1513 battle and beat off competition from accredited marmalade makers throughout the United Kingdom and abroad to grab third place in the Any Citrus Marmalade category.

“Once again we are delighted to take a bronze at this amazing marmalade festival,” she said.

“We entered three years ago and won silver for our Lady Waterford’s Marmalade with Chips and since then the competition has got even stiffer.”

The marmalades are judged for taste, aroma, set, looks and style.
