Handmade in Yorkshire

Stirring up the preserve industry, Fruity Kitchen’s mother and daughter team create their jams and relishes just outside the beautiful city of York.

Julia started the business back in 2008.

Yorkshire jams, chutneys, marmalades, and relishes that began as a hobby.

With an ideal background of farming and food (and Gran Dunnill’s teachings firmly etched in my mind), I started making good old fashioned jam, just as it should be… and Fruity Kitchen was created.

Daughter Hannah joined in 2009.

With a background in hospitality and customer service, together, we’ve built a close team of enthusiastic and passionate ‘jammers’. Growing the team has ensured that every batch is still handmade, something which makes us truly unique (and something we think Gran Dunnill would be extremely proud of!).

Having started cooking from our family kitchen, Fruity Kitchen is now based in a purpose-built kitchen. We still use the same open pan methods that we’ve always used, with customer service and the power of artisan quality always at the heart of what we do.

With our jams and full range of preserves, we see a bigger picture. With a quality preserve the sensations are unlimited. From the taste and smell that bring a moment of pleasure to the often forgotten memories brought to the fore front of minds. Preserves’ certainly are more than jams and chutneys. They are part of an occasion and here at the Fruity Kitchen we value this quality.
