Take your baking to the next level with The Grainge Jams
Slather your scones with fresh raspberry jam that is handmade right here on the Gold Coast. The Grainge Jams are so good they were awarded gold at the Royal Melbourne Fine Food Awards.
Irked by the lack of high quality homemade jam on the market, Paul Grainger took matters into his own hands and began making jams in his family kitchen, the way his mother used to do. His operations have expanded to a commercial kitchen in Ashmore and his homemade jams are now found in delis and stores all over the Gold Coast, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast under the label The Grainge Jams.
The jam is handmade in small batches to retain its natural vibrant colour and fruity flavour. It isn’t overly processed and only uses citrus pectin to thicken so there are no artificial flavours or colours. The secret, he says, is the high quality dessert-grade fruit that makes up more than 60% of the jam’s contents.
The Grainge range offers five fine preserves including raspberry, boysenberry, three fruit marmalade, a combination of raspberry and boysenberry, and Apricot although that’s a seasonal special. The Grainge Jams can be found in a wide range of stores and food markets around the coast.
