For Jane Steward of Eastgate Larder medlars are her passion. She is reviving this long forgotten, old English fruit which was once Britain’s sweet treat. The medlar trees pale green fruit softens and mellows through bletting on trays in a cool place, until it’s ready to eat, or to make into jelly or fruit cheese.
We stock Eastgate Larder's Medlar Jelly in 100g jars, it is delicious served with game and other meats, hot or cold. A spoonful enriches sauces and may also be used as a condiment. It is lovely with soft cheeses and pâtés.
