Launched in 2014, Clare’s Preserves is a true artisan producer of multi award winning marmalades, jams, jellies,chutneys and relishes. Based in the foothills of Dartmoor, all products are handmade by Clare in small batches, using traditional open pot methods.
Clare’s early career was steeped in saltwater adventures, working on vessels large and small, from a rescue launch in Mallorca to flight engineer on the cross channel hovercraft. In 2013 Clare decided to leave the maritime world behind her and turn a passion for cooking into a career – she enrolled at the award winning Ashburton Chef’s Academy, graduating six months later with a professional culinary diploma (with distinction). She then started producing a few varieties of seasonal preserves as a treat for friends and family.
