Memories of Strawberry Jam

Surprisingly, a strawberry isn’t a “berry” at all, its actually part of the rose family, which includes apples and plums!. It’s also the only fruit with seeds that grow on the outside. Did you know strawberries are rich in vitamin C and high in Folate, are low in natural sugars and are packed with beneficial flavonoid antioxidants – all needed for a healthy heart. 

remember when my mum made jams using fruits from our garden. There was this huge pale yellow Fowlers preserving pot, filled with jars, lids and clips, with a thermometer poking out the top, simmering away on the stove. In a separate pot, almost as large, mum would place all the ingredients needed to make her jam. If I was lucky enough I got to stir the jam occasionally while it bubbled on the stove, throwing out the most tantalising smells.  I do recall the odd burnt finger from dipping my finger into the hot pot to taste.   

Strawberry Jam is still one of my all-time favourites. Whenever I get to enjoy a freshly baked scone with jam and cream, I immediately remember back to my childhood days, and of the delicious aromas which emanated from my mum’s kitchen. Maybe that is where my love of cooking came from …

As candle-makers, Mel & I worked in close partnership with our fragrance supplier to create an exclusive range of heart-stopping, true to life candle scents. We want our customers to be transported back in time, just like I am when I smell our strawberry jam, so they too can remember fondly days of the past.  

Here at Chandelle Galerie, our strawberry jam candle fragrance is a true to life home made jam experience. It's phthalate free and is available in 50ml, 100ml and 500ml bottles. Other fragrance oils of the same name are not the same product.
