Here are some of the comments from the judges:
(also see our Awards page...)
As good as the best homemade
(Kitchen Garden Organic Seville Orange Marmalade)
Honest and versatile
(Kitchen Garden Organic Beetroot Chutney)
...a wonderful balance and beautiful to look at
(Kitchen Garden Organic Spiced Apricot and Orange Chutney)
The Orange and Cardamom I used to rub into my chicken with a little olive oil and other herbs and spices then roasted in the oven, it was divine. You could really taste the orange and cardamom despite having added other seasoning.

You can’t get better than a jar of ‘Kitchen Garden’ in the cupboard ...jams, chutneys and marmalades made to the highest standards... you would think that they were homemade. Their delicious pots are a fine way to start the day on toast, or to accompany cheeses and hams

Over the past five years I have grown to love the products that Barbara and Robin have produced at Kitchen Garden. Both of them and their team have created foods of real distinction in terms of taste, traceability, nutrition and value for money.
As they continue to develop new products of equal quality and invest into new markets it is quite clear that they will never steer away from the fundamentals that have underpinned their success up to now.
I am always proud to use Kitchen Garden’s products whether it is at home with my family, at a farmer’s market, cooking at embassies around the world or indeed with cheeses as a meal for the Queen in April 2003. They are amongst the finest in the country and deserve to grace the tables of all UK consumers and those around the globe.
In every one of Kitchen Garden’s products you know there is a touch of personality from the team that have produced them. The product has a tale to tell and one that celebrates quality.
Robert has very kindly allowed us to publish two of his recipes on this website.
