Hartys Original Jellies – the savoury jelly makers
Harty’s Jellies make a range of six savoury jellies: Chargrilled Pepper Jelly, Mint Jelly, Hot Pepper Jelly, Apple and Sage with Chilli Jelly, Cranberry Jelly and Ginger Hot Pepper Jelly. Each jar contains 230g. All Harty’s Original Jellies are 100% Irish made and are ‘clean’, that is they contain no additives, preservatives, meat gelatine (they are 100% vegetarian) and are all gluten-free and dairy free. The whole range is also virtually fat-free and salt-free (they contain only negligible amounts).
Our savoury jellies can be used exactly like a relish or condiment: served on top of a sausage, on the side of a meat or cheese plate, to add excitement to a sandwich (use it instead of mustard or mayonnaise); to serve with lamb or pork chops (our Harty’s Mint Jelly is excellent but so is the Harty’s Original Apple and Sage and the Hot Pepper Jelly); with a grilled chicken breast (a dollop of Ginger Hot Pepper Jelly will transform it); to serve with an Irish breakfast when you need a little bit of heat (try our Hot Pepper Jelly) or to eat with roast meats including beef, lamb and turkey.
The Harty’s Original Jelly range were created by chef Melanie Harty, a regular at artisan food markets and festivals throughout the country. Originally from Tralee, County Kerry, Melanie originally moved to the US to further her career as a chef – when she was there, she became passionate about making savoury jellies. When she returned to Ireland to live full-time, she based herself in County Kerry and set about making the finest savoury jellies.
Ireland has a long tradition of jelly making and mint jelly is served with Easter roast lamb. Melanie, who is a lover of traditional jellies, was struck by the taste and versatility of the pepper jellies she found in America – an increasingly popular condiment that has its roots in the spicy rustic home-cooked food of Texas and the surrounding southern states. This type of jelly is often referred to as ‘savoury jelly’ in England where there is a fine tradition of making mint jelly, cranberry jelly and the sweeter quince jelly.
