All our home-made items are made right here on site at the Sunnyside. Where possible they are made using locally sourced produce with sustainable packaging.
We control what goes into the home-made items so food doesn’t contain preservatives and we try to make them as healthy as possible. Our home-made items include:
We make home-made jam using locally grown fruit from Flavourfresh. Our range of jams includes Sweet Victoria Blackberry’s, Lusa Strawberry’s, Duke Blueberry’s and Raspberry. Thier produce is of a very high quality and they are one of Marks and Spencer’s select farmers.
The jam is purchased from the Flavourfresh on side shop, The Garage. Funds raised from The Garage are put back into the community through sponsorship projects and are used to help pay for social events for their hard-working team.
Our jam is packaged in glass jars which we reuse, instead of using single use plastic pots. It contains basic ingredients; fruit, sugar and lemon juice. no preservatives. It also has high fruit content in comparison to store bought jams.
Our jams can be purchased from the Sunnyside with all proceeds going to this years charity, Queenscourt Hospice.
Our home-made marmalade has been very popular with guests. It contains a high percentage of shreds in comparison to store bought marmalades making it a little unique.
We are currently using standard oranges to make our marmalade, however to hope to source some premium Saville oranges when they come into season shortly.

It is served in squeezy, reusable plastic sauce bottles that we refill to avoid any single use plastic waste.
