Springdale Success at Usk Show 2018

Here’s a selection of our Prize Winning Jams and Cakes

Bara Brith

Loganberries

Planted last year, 2017, this is the first year (2018) for picking our loganberries.

They look like raspberries but the fruit is a little longer and firmer. The loganberry is a raspberry x blackberry hybrid with quite a tart flavour which is ideal for cooking or jam.

The fruit is a sharper than a raspberry but makes delicious jam which sets in minutes.

A jug full of loganberries can be turned into three of these lovely jars of jam!

Jazzy Potatoes

First potatoes of the year

Planted in April in raised beds in the polytunnel.

May 10th – growing well

Time for digging up

June 10th 2018

Jazzy Potatoes

Washed potatoes ready for the pot

Cooked and ready to eat

A delicious potato – one to remember – Jazzy

This is a new trial for Springdale. It has grown really well in the Polytunnel and is a tasty and strong growing potato which produces lots of evenly sized small waxy potatoes.

The cream coloured skin is very thin and needs no peeling, in fact it can be rubbed off with fingers.

This potato is a second early and has an absolutely delicious ‘melt in the mouth’ flavour.
