Millers Larder are artisan producers of handmade preserves, chutneys and fine foods. We SOURCE our ingredients and suppliers locally from the Avon and Clyde Valleys whenever possible.
Made by Chefs, for Chefs.
We buy from, support and promote Scottish and British farmers and growers whenever possible. We are very proud of our Langholm connections and
our Dumfries and Galloway farming family heritage.
Our Perfyit Piccalili was the WINNER OF FOODSERVICE PRODUCT
OF THE YEAR in the Scottish Food and Drink Excellence Awards 2016!
We CREATE modern tasting and bespoke chutneys, an amazingly crunchy tangy piccalilli and jellies. We COOK innovative recipes with quality ingredients, cider vinegar and FairTrade cane sugars, using traditional methods passed down through our family. Our mothers and grannies were such good cooks. My mum Stella still is.
As professional cooks, both of us are passionate about cooking and using seasonal ingredients.
Our products TASTE fresh and use natural ingredients with no additives, using heritage apples, tomatoes and ale from Strathaven's Craigmill Brewery as well as gathering and foraging for seasonal fruits. All are gluten free except for the Avondale Apple Amber which is made with Avondale Amber Ale.
They are delicious to ACCOMPANY lots of different foods and can also be used as an essential ingredient in cooking.
Millers Larder is based in the historic village of Stonehouse in the Avon Valley. Nearby is the Clyde Valley famed throughout the world for its fruit, vegetables and of course – growing tomatoes.
We make our products using only the best ingredients which where possible are locally sourced, collected and purchased. We have taken traditional recipes as well as creating new ones and have given them a modern day twist.
We Source, Create, Cook, Taste and provide you with chutneys, jellies and a very special piccalilli to accompany a whole range of foods for you to share and enjoy!
Our customers are key to us and we hope to give each and every one of our customers loyalty and their own special focus while understanding their individual needs. We have a passion to share, showcase and accompany our unique fresh modern tasting chutneys, jellies and piccalilli with your food for you to enjoy.
We prepare and cook our products in small batches to maintain the taste of the ingredients and quality of the product. By purchasing our jars, labels and LoSalt - which has 66% less sodium than regular table, sea and rock salts, we have been both encouraged and supported by them. They, as we do with with our customers, have gone that extra mile for us. Thank you.
Production takes place in our newly refitted kitchen on the Rangemaster stove. The range of jellies and chutneys are all handmade in small batches using traditional open pans.
We still use the much loved Glenzier school kitchen pot which I was given and my mother Stella's Jeelie pans.
There are no artificial flavourings, colourings or preservatives in any of our products and we always use Fair Trade ingredients wherever possible. All our products are free from nuts and gluten (with the exception of the Avondale Apple Amber) and are suitable for vegetarians.
We do hope that you will enjoy our products as much as we have in creating, preparing and cooking them.
