Thursday Cottage was started in a Somerset kitchen in 1963. We may have moved to Essex but nothing much has changed since then -the batches are still small with about 100 jars made from every boil, the ingredients the finest we can find and the recipes simple and deliciously fresh. We make over 120 different curds, jams, marmalades and a host of Christmas and gifting products. We also make organic and reduced sugar jams and marmalades, which are proving increasingly popular with our customers. All of our products are handmade in small batches and cooked in traditional pans. We stir the fresh ingredients by hand and fill by hand when we can (you get more whole fruit hand pouring) and then hand pack our finished goods off to our customers. You won’t find Thursday Cottage products in the major supermarkets because we like to support independent trade, which is where we started over fifty years ago.
