Butcher Gerard King launches coastal town’s inaugural charity marmalade competition.
Get your jam pans and wooden spoons ready, because the race is on to find the best amateur marmalade maker in the east.
Butcher Gerard King of Salter & King has just launched the inaugural Aldeburgh Marmalade Competition, raising money for the Alde and Ore Estuary Trust.
Pop into the shop on Aldeburgh’s High Street and buy a bag of juicy, bittersweet Seville oranges (the proceeds of which will go to the charity) and take them home, transforming them into pots of sticky edible gold before returning a jar to Gerard for judging.
A panel including Jules Field of Jules and Sharpie, head chef James Barber of The White Lion Hotel, and marmalade-lover Tess (Gerard’s wife) will sample the entries before choosing a winner, who’ll be honoured at a ceremony at The White Lion Hotel on Thursday, February 22.

The winner will take away a trophy and a whole gammon joint from Salter & King – incidentally, wonderful cooked with marmalade.
