Here’s a truly unique product from Wilkin and Sons of Tiptree. Little Scarlet is not your average strawberry jam – it’s something very special indeed. Sure, it’s kinda pricey, but this stuff is of a level of quality you just don’t find elsewhere. That’s why it’s called a “strawberry conserve”, not just a plain old jam. It’s truly the Rolls-Royce of breakfast spreads. As soon as you try it, you’ll understand where the money goes!
Wilkin and Sons’ Little Scarlet is in a class of its own for two main reasons. Firstly, it contains about twice as much fruit as other strawberry jams. One look in the jar shows that it’s jam-packed(!) full of tiny, whole strawberries. In fact it’s more strawberry than jam – 60% by weight is fruit.
No other jam we know of contains whole fruit like this, and it’s that’s probably because no other jam uses the particular strawberries found in this one – Little Scarlet. This is a very small, intensely sweet variety, native to North America, which is used only by Wilkin and Sons. Nobody else grows Little Scarlet strawberries commercially, so there simply isn’t another strawberry jam like it.
Perhaps this is why it has such a cult following. Novelist Philip Roth was a huge fan, and it’s said that the late Queen Elizabeth loved the stuff (Wilkin and Sons’ products have the royal crest on the label, meaning that they supplied the Queen). Even James Bond tucks into some Little Scarlet in From Russia With Love.
Try some and we think you’ll soon understand what all the fuss is about. Sure, it’s expensive, but, there’s a good reason for that. We think this might be the finest strawberry jam on earth. Combine your Little Scarlet Strawberry Conserve with some clotted cream and scones and you’re in for a transcendently decadent afternoon tea experience.
