World Marmalade Award For Ewelina’s Home Pantry

World Marmalade Award For Ewelina’s Home Pantry

Ewelina Napiórkowska of New Forest-based Ewelina’s Home Pantry picked up Silver and two Commendations in this year's World Marmalade Competition, The Dalemain World Marmalade Awards, even though Ewelina has only been making marmalade for two years.

Ewelina’s Lemon and Rosemary Marmalade received the Silver Roundel and the Sweet Orange & Spicy Chai Tea Marmalade and Lemon and Green Tea Marmalade both received the highly recommended award.

Ewelina commented: “It is a great honour for me, because the level of this competition is very high, and my products competed with the best products from around the world. I have been preparing marmalade for only two years, having never prepared this preserve before.”

The Marmalade Awards received entries from more than 33 countries worldwide with an expert judging panel including food writer Dan Lepard, Fortnum & Mason Grocery Buyer Holly Warren, and food historian Ivan Day.

Jane Hasell-McCosh, Founder of the Awards, said: “Artisan makers are so valuable to our marmalade community and the variation and creativity of the entrants this year has been notable. I hope that Ewelina’s Home Pantry will have great success with their marmalade both locally and further afield.”

The World’s Original Marmalade Awards were founded in 2005 to help to preserve, grow and widen one of the most British of customs – marmalade making. From small beginnings they have grown into an internationally renowned and highly acclaimed event. Dalemain roundels denote marmalade of exemplary quality with marmalades judged for appearance, colour, consistency, aroma and flavour.

Ewelina added: “The competition from all over the world has been exceptional and we are delighted to have won this award. We have been making marmalade for only two years so it is great to have this award to cement our view that we make such a delicious product."
