Beautiful blossom honey from Turriff where the bees can savour the wild flowers and the floral notes from nearby country estates. As Mr Anderson states on his jars, it is estimated that bees will collect nectar from about 1million flowers and fly 27,000 miles to create one jar of honey! The honey is gently fragrant and delicious for spreading, using in herbal teas, and cooking. He also makes jams with local fruit.

The production area is not open to public but right next door on the outskirts of Lamlash is their shop with the complete range of jams and chutneys, shortbread and oatcakes, plus an excellent range of mustards, using the locally grown elephant garlic.

There is chutney to suit everyone, from spicy hot to milder aromatic. They also have a range of tourist gifts and souvenirs for your trip to Arran.

This Spiced Fruit Chutney is fruity but not too hot and perfect as a baked potato filling, a kick to a jambalaya or a juiciness to a biryani.

Comments

Isle of Colonsay Wildflower Honey is unique, not only because of its taste, although amongst honeys it is ranked with the best; but also because of its provenance, as bees and quality honey are something of a rarity on small windswept islands.

It is that unique combination of a native pure bred bee plus the environment in which they forage, wildflowers and herbs from the machair and heathers. One of very few isolated populations of pure bred native black bee left in Europe and as such a valuable gene pool and is on Slow Food's Ark of Taste.

A truly fine range of sweet balsamic dressings. Made from raw cane sugar and balsamic vinegar, Colin has really gone the extra mile with pure and seasonal variations in his range.

The lemon zest really makes you feel you are zesting that lemon for your dressing; the whisky ones take you to a single malt distillery and the ginger balsamic has the real zing of fresh ginger. His raspberry vinegar is made with local fresh rasps and packs a beautiful punch! It won the prestigious Best Product Award at Scotland’s Speciality Food Show in 2014. He has other ideas to drizzle well worth a taste too.

Salann na Mara (Salt of the Sea) from Skye. It has a delicacy of flavour and a beautynanette.jpg in its crystals that impress me greatly. Some salts can be quite harsh, others like dust, but this has real style and a delightful story too.

Recently launched, the last commercial attempt at producing sea salt on Skye was in the 1700’s. Now Isle of Skye Sea Salt Co is ’harvesting’ from the deep clear waters of Loch Snizort and using only the sun’s rays to do its magic.

A great deal of hard work has gone into this highly sustainable product. It has excellent environmental credentials and has had a lovely feature on James Martin's BBC1 'Home Comforts.'

Flavours include bitter orange and cherry liqueur and all are gluten free, made from finest Belgian chocolate.

Delicious local honey that I recall from my student days and is equally lovely today. Still made traditionally in the village, it has a creamy consistency and opaque appearance. As tasty in recipes as it is on your toast! In spring/summer his honey is pale in colour as the bees feast on pollen from hawthorn and clover. Later in the year they produce a darker, runnier honey.

Rapeseed oil is recognised as one of the healthiest culinary oils available. Half the saturated fat compared to Olive Oil, a near perfect balance of Omega's 3, 6 and 9 and a source of Natural Vitamin E. However, it is not just for health reasons that many people are becoming ‘rapeseed converts’ – consumer are increasingly buying local and both provenance and traceability are very important factors to the consumer when they’re choosing cooking ingredients. This is something equally important to Colin McGregor the shareholder grower of Borderfields rapeseed oil in the Scottish Borders.

Chain Bridge Honey Farm
Comments

Started by famous beekeeper William Selby Robson in 1948 this is still a family business specialising in natural honey products, from honeycombs to candles, not to mention wonderful jars of their honey.

The Chain Bridge Honey Farm takes its name from the historic Union Chain Bridge, only 200 yards away that links Scotland and England across the River Tweed - they are JUST on the cusp of Scotland and England so the bees probably fly zig zag between the two countries!

They also have an excellent visitor centre to find out all about bees and buy their produce, then head for their cafe in a double decker bus, The Honey Bus Cafe before you go!

Ooft! Scotch Bonnet Hot Sauce
Comments

Ooft! is one of a kind! A well aged sauce similar to maturing a fine wine or an aged balsamic. 'Pepper Master'  Gabrielle has to constantly taste the elixir to ensure it is bottled at just the right moment. The peppers are imported, in season, when they are at their best, and blended with entirely natural ingredients, including local Supernature Rapeseed Oil, to a secret recipe, handed down through the family.

The sauce takes between 1 and 3 years to mature - the only aged hot sauce made in the UK. A drop or two on your toasted cheese or on a stir fried seafood dish will give a deliciously unexpected Caribbean kick of fruity hot spice!
