Sticky time for Axminster shop
Marmalade expert spreads the word about breakfast favourite
THE No Halff Measures charity shop, in Axminster, was jam-packed for a talk on marmalade last week.
Enthusiasts from across Devon went along to the South Street store for a demonstration and talk by award-winning preserve maker, West Dorset based Maya Pieris.
While passing on some professional tips and tricks of the trade of a master marmalade maker, Maya had time to fill the audience in on the fascinating history of the nation’s favourite breakfast conserve. She talked about it origins as a pear, apple or quince sweetmeat in Portugal to its promotion in Victorian Scotland as an alternative to an early morning dram.
At the end of the session there was a chance to taste different marmalades and other preserves under the Maya’s Four Seasons label and produced from her kitchens in Askerwell, near Bridport, a range of which are now available through the No Halff Measures (HALFF) shop.
