Based in the beautiful farmlands of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, we produce our signature Traditional English Curds and Marmalades from our own facility where they are made in open kettles with love and care.
It all started in 2005 when, on a whim, the founders Ron & Cecille Steele, decided to make some Lemon Curd, a favorite spread of Ron's dating back to his childhood. A small double boiler (which hadn't been used for many years) was brought back into service and the first batch was made. Because it was close to the holiday season, we decided to make some for Christmas gifts for friends. They were received with such great enthusiasm that orders were received and, well, as they say, the rest is history.
From the very beginning, unlike many of the imported and locally produced brands we chose to stay with the 'Traditional' method of making an English Curd using eggs, egg yolks and butter to produce a velvety smooth product that just melts in the mouth. In addition the freshness of the citrus juices and sugars provide the deliciously sweet zesty flavors that are a hallmark of our product.
Lemon Curd is the original curd which originated in England in the 18th Century so it is by far the most popular of our flavors which include Raspberry (made from seedless puree), Key Lime and Orange. Our English Curds and Marmalades are sold across the country in many specialty food stores, gourmet foods stores, and tea shops.
More recently we were delighted to add a wonderful collection of teas from the Drury Tea company in England. This is a collection of wonderful teas imported and blended to perfection. Beautifully packaged, they are sold in both pyramid teabags and loose teas.
