Welcome to Claire’s handmade

At Claire’s Handmade we love all types of jams, chutneys, marmalades and relishes. We are a small food producer based in the beautiful county of Cumbria, on the outskirts of the English Lake District. We love spending time in our kitchen developing new recipes and working with marvellous ingredients and flavours to make our award winning preserves.

When developing new recipes we like to create that perfect match.
Sweet or savoury, there are many combinations, and many happy accidents that just work so well.

Scone with Strawberry Extra Jam

Freshly baked scones with Strawberry Jam

Handmade Strawberry Jam with freshly baked scones just out of the oven – there’s nothing better! Our traditionally made Strawberry Extra Jam brings a burst of summer flavour to warm scones.  We love this recipe from BBC Good Food for delicious scones which are quick and easy to make.

Cumberland Chutney with Craft Ale

Cumberland Chutney with Craft Ale – just the job with a creamy blue cheese

Packed with dates and apples and lightly spiced with ginger and mace, this fruity chutney goes extremely well with a creamy blue cheese.

Damson Fruit Cheese

Damson Fruit Cheese

If you’re looking for a centre piece for a special cheeseboard, our Damson Fruit Cheese creates a great talking point!  Ease it out of jar whole or get creative and cut it into all sorts of shapes!
