A SPICED pumpkin flavoured marmalade, has won a Stratford-upon-Avon B&B a bronze award at an international marmalade convention in Cumbria.
The Moss Cottage bed and breakfast on Evesham Road, which is run by Bill Bruce, entered two homemade marmalades into the World’s Original Marmalade Awards in Dalemain, Cumbria.
Made by Bill's partner Peter Buckroyd, a retired Chief Examiner of English, the pair were absolutely delighted to learn his spiced pumpkin creation had tickled the judges’ taste buds and clinched a bronze award.
Bill said: “I’ve been running Moss Cottage B&B on Evesham Road for just over two years. I try to provide homemade food as much as possible for my guests. Everybody is welcomed with cake that we make and a pot of tea or coffee and breakfast includes homemade bread for toast with our very own jams and marmalades made right here in the house.”
The tasty breakfast table treats impressed one of his guests so much, they tipped off the organisers of the world marmalade awards, who invited the B&B to submit his entries.
“I didn't expect to hear anything back but to my great surprise we won a bronze award for our spiced pumpkin variety in the B&B/hotel category,” Bill added.
