Marmalade Competition Causes A Stir For The AOET

An inaugural charity marmalade competition fundraising for the Alde & Ore Estuary Trust was a huge success earlier this year, leading to a donation of £360 being made.

Butcher Gerard King of Salter & King in Aldeburgh came up with the idea back in January and along with judges Jules Field of Jules and Sharpie, James Barber head chef of The White Lion Hotel and his marmalade loving wife Tess King, encouraged locals to get involved and create pots of delicious and sticky, edible gold.

Over 50 people bought a bag of juicy Seville oranges, the proceeds of which were donated to the Alde & Ore Estuary Trust. 

Congratulations to the winner Malcolm Myers of Aldeburgh who won a trophy together with a whole gammon joint from Salter & King.
