New boxed products from Northern Irish specialist in relishes

Passion Preserved, the award–winning Northern Irish producer of savoury jellies, preserves, relishes and chutneys, has created a range of boxes for convenience home catering.

The company, which is owned by Claire Kelly and is based near Lisburn in county Antrim, has grouped its extensive range of products into boxes for existing and new customers in the UK, Republic of Ireland and the Middle East.

The range of boxes which retail at approx. £10.95 include ‘Hot’ (spicy), ‘Cheese’ (cheeseboard accompaniments), ‘Party’ (for easy entertaining) and ‘Taster’ which enables shoppers to select their own three jars as a bespoke gift. A ‘Limited Edition’ box is also available featuring products selected by Mrs Kelly.

The small company has won a series of UK Great Taste Awards for its range of hand crafted products which are made from ingredients grown by Mrs Kelly in her own small holding. She grows a number of ingredients including chillis in her own poly tunnel.

Mrs Kelly, commenting on the new boxes, says: “I decided to pull all my products together in formats that would make it easier for customers to use for their specific requirements such as, for instance, with a cheeseboard or to accompany spicy meals such as a curry.

“The boxes provide guidance on how to best to use the products for meals or snacks. They are also designed as ideal gifts.”


Claire Kelly gave up a successful career as a chartered accountant and business adviser to pursue a passion in food production, creating her own recipes for jellies, relishes and chutneys including the spicy Kasundi Indian inspired relish, Watermelon Rind Pickle, Savoury Watermelon Jam, Spiced Damson Jelly, Vampire Jelly Sunshine Relish.

Customers include Fortnum and Mason in London and Saveco in Kuwait City. She set up the business in late 2012 and specialises in small batches using the best local ingredients from her own small holding as well as from neighbouring farmers.

 “I love to experiment with natural ingredients, sometimes using old recipes and adapting them, other times inspired by something I’ve eaten while travelling. Everything I make is natural with no artificial colourings or preservatives, made in small batches with care and attention. Some of it is seasonal as it is made purely with my own produce; some is available all year round with ingredients sourced from the best local suppliers,” she adds.
