About Claire's Handmade - Claire’s Handmade began at home in 2003 with my mother’s treasured Aga jam pan, my grandmother’s plum chutney recipe, our Rayburn, some plums and a handful of glass jars. Our professional catering background gave us the knowledge to understand the various regulations, and Claire’s Handmade was born.
We took our Old Fashioned Plum Chutney to a local farmers’ market and customers loved it. We were delighted and inspired by the comments made that day by all the people that tasted our chutney.
It soon became obvious that we couldn’t produce enough chutney from our kitchen at home and so we moved into dedicated purpose-built kitchen. The business, in the heart of the north Cumbrian countryside on the edge of the Lake District National Park, has continued to grow and we have gained many loyal preserve-loving friends.
Over the years, we have won numerous ‘Great Taste Awards’, ‘Best Overall Preserve in the North West’ and the “Lake District Life Food Heroes Award’.
We are proud to be a British business, a Cumbrian business, and most importantly a family business'.
