Ashleigh and Aaron Barr make everything by hand and pack their jams, chutneys and relishes with top quality ingredients and the right amount of spice. That makes for some pretty sensational jars of flavour. Think Chilli and Basil Jam, or Onion, Garlic and Thyme Chutney. There’s some sweet ones too.

LEMON CURD TARTS
- Premade shortcrust pastry tart shells

4. Top with raspberry half and a few leaves of fresh thyme
Some twists on this idea:
Diced strawberries, tossed in Kinky Kondiments’ Strawberry & Cardamom Jam,
with fresh cream and mint.
Kinky Kondiments Carrot Jam, topped with a cheesecake style frosting and
topped with toasted and crushed walnuts
