And the winner is ………….

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

We’re delighted to announce that after two weeks of voting, Clare Jefferis’ recipe for Gooseberry Pots is the clear winner in our Diamond Jubilee Recipe competition.

Claire was crowned winner with more than half of the final votes, after having fought off competition from the other three shortlisted recipes which included Smoked Salmon Cheesecake, Royally Spiced Smoked Salmon Parcels and Dream Cream Jubilee Cake.

As the overall winner, we will be sending Clare our fantastic Jubilee Shopper to celebrate the 5th June in style.











Gooseberry Pots is a firm favourite in the Jefferis household and tastes even better when it is made with homegrown gooseberries. Below is the recipe in case you want to try it out for your own Jubilee celebrations.

Congratulations Clare from all at Inverawe!


Gooseberry Pots


500g (1lb 2oz) gooseberries

100g (3.5oz) caster sugar

30mls (1 fl oz) sweet cider (or apple juice)
