Jams & Marmalade by Frank Cooper
Frank Cooper's is a brand for real marmalade connoisseurs! With its strong, robust flavour it is the UK's favourite brand of premium marmalade. The "fine cut' is the most popular, although the 'course-cut and peel free' versions are also very delicious.
In 1874, Sarah Jane, the wife of Oxford shopkeeper Frank Cooper, manufactured the first batch of Frank Cooper's marmalade to a recipe believed to have been her mother's. In 1903, to satisfy increasing demand, particularly amongst the Oxford dons and undergraduates, Frank Cooper opened a factory near the railway station in Oxford, England.
A jar of Frank Cooper's marmalade went to Antarctica with Scott and was subsequently found, many years later, buried in the ice.
Carrying as it does the Royal Warrant, Frank Cooper's marmalade has been standard fare at British embassies the world over. The Queen herself also admits to enjoying Frank Cooper's at breakfast!
All Frank Cooper Marmalade and Jam is imported from the UK.
All of the jams and marmalade sold through our website are made with real fruit. We carry Hartley's Best Jam, known for being a smooth spread with no fruit bits; Robertson's, including Gold Shred marmalade; and Frank Cooper's, supposedly the Queen's favorite marmalade which is served in British embassies across the globe. Marmalade is made with Seville oranges, which explains its sweet and bitter taste. It is best served for breakfast with fresh, crusty bread or toast. Lemon curd, another spread that goes well on toast and scones, is a combination of cooked cream, eggs, sugar, and lemon juice and zest, making it more buttery in taste than pie filling. In some confections, it can be used as a thick, sweet filling as well.
