Kitchen Conserves is an Artisan food producer situated at Rathanna, Pearse Road in Sligo town.
Cooking a variety of small batch products in my home kitchen.
Products include Pesto, Chutney, Milk & Water Kefirs, Sauces, Jams and Marmalades.
Seasonal wild produce such as nettles and wild garlic are foraged and crafted into pestos along with kale, spinach and basil varieties.
It is my aim to source local ingredients where possible but also travel to Smithfield fruit and vegetable market, Dublin to source the freshest ingredients available. No chemicals, additives, colours, concentrates or enhancers are added to the produce. I also use cane and demerara sugars in preference to white granulated versions.
In the case of Kefirs, the milk is organic and water distilled. Where possible the fruit juices used for flavouring the kefirs are also organic and always made from whole fruits.
I like to keep the produce interesting and add flavourings such as alcohol to my jams and chutneys. Popular in this regard are the Raspberry & Rum, Blueberry Mojito and Blackberry and Bourbon varieties of jams.
Chutney varieties which are popular include Pineapple and Chilli, Pear & Rum, Mango Chutney and Cranberry & Cognac. I also produce seasonal relishes.
