Erin Grove's Chilli and Lime is quite intriguing and we would really say that it's a smooth apple preserve that has been gently touched with Lime and Chilli. The result is a far more sophisticated product, ideal for use across a wide range of cheese boards.
Please note: Chilli & Lime Fruits for Cheese must be refrigerated and should be used within 4 weeks after opening.
Ingredients: Apples, Cane Sugar, Lime Juice 2%, Chillies 2%

Hi, I’m Jayne Paget, founder of Erin Grove Preserves. My story begins in my childhood days growing up on the family farm just outside Enniskillen in beautiful Co. Fermanagh, N. Ireland.
My Grandmother, who was a keen gardener, grew a whole range of fruit and vegetables – we were almost self-sufficient in those days! I remember spending hot summer days picking fruit in the garden, we had strawberries, raspberries, blackcurrants, gooseberries and rhubarb. This was then brought into the kitchen where we made jam on the stove. It was her who taught me the craft of making jam and gave me the inspiration to create something truly delicious using just the basic, but the best quality, ingredients! The surplus jam was sold through my Aunt’s home bakery in Enniskillen giving me a source of income, but also making me realise that there was a ready market for good quality homemade products.
In establishing the business I wanted to maintain the ethos of producing a top quality product using the best quality ingredients to produce a range of products that are simply bursting with colour and flavour and that would give us a point of difference from the mass produced brands. To that end we still make all of our products by hand in small batches in the same way my Grandmother made them on the kitchen stove – we just have more saucepans now!
Indeed, we are still using her recipes today! Along the way we added a range of chutneys and are now producing almost 40 different products! We are also very proud to have won 10 Great Taste Awards proving that our products can compete with the best in the country!
The artisan team at Erin Grove has produced a delicious range of products. Erin Grove's Fruits for Cheese are perfect with pate, cold cuts or used in sauces. The Indian spiced pineapple relish is stunning with a deep and balanced punch of traditonal indian spicing. Great job Erin Grove, keep up the good work.
