Whalsay Made is a small food company based on the isle of Whalsay producing homemade delicious preserves, chutneys and sauce. The products are made in small batches with a particular focus on good quality.
Whalsay Made key products are Whalsay Sweet Chilli Sauce, Gin and Lime Marmalade and Carrot Marmalade.
It all began when I grew too many chillies in my greenhouse, I needed a recipe to use them up. This was the beginning of Whalsay Made with the first batches of Whalsay Sweet Chilli Sauce being produced, it still remains the most popular product to date.
Seasonal and local ingredients are used wherever possible, the Rhubarb in my jam is grown in Whalsay.
I am passionate about good food and enjoy cooking. Growing up and living on an island gives you an appreciation of the produce around you. As a child home baking and preserving was an integral part of my home life and this tradition remains with me.
Whalsay Sweet Chilli sauce is made with red peppers, tomatoes, onions, fresh garlic, ginger and chillies. Great on it’s own as a dip or it can used to coat chicken before oven baking or use it as a sauce in stir fries.
Gin and lime marmalade - a lime marmalade infused with the finest local Gin, first you get the fresh taste of limes then the subtle taste of gin comes through. Great with oatcakes or with a slice of The Kitchen Bakery wholemeal bread. A friend uses it as accompaniment to poppadum with curry.
Carrot Marmalade - has a great orange colour with a delicious taste as a breakfast marmalade.
