Award-winning Fife company, Pittenweem Preserves, is helping to preserve Rosslyn Chapel’s historic links with Fife, with a selection of their jams now on sale in the Chapel’s gift shop.
Fiona Audsley (pictured) started the company, with her husband Michael, in 2018 when a local store asked her to supply homemade jam to sell to local residents and visitors. Their jam selection is now on sale in a number of high-profile sites across Scotland, including Rosslyn Chapel, in Midlothian. Using her life-long love of jam making, Fiona makes all the preserves in maslin pans, with fruit sourced from local farms and gardens wherever possible. In 2020, her raspberry jam was awarded Gold for ‘Best Product’ at the Scottish Speciality Food Show.
Ian Gardner, Director of Rosslyn Chapel Trust, said: ‘We are delighted to be stocking Pittenweem Preserves in our gift shop. The Chapel was founded by Sir William St Clair in 1446 and the St Clair family connections with Fife date back to 1471 when Ravenscraig Castle was given to Sir William in exchange for the Earldom of Orkney. It’s therefore a very appropriate new addition for us and, as the Trust is a registered charity, every purchase will support our conservation work’.
