Celebrating 50 Years of Mustard Making: Quote from our Friend, Sophie Grigson

Famed English cookery writer and celebrity cook, Sophie Grigson, shares her first memories of Tracklements:

When I was young, my parents occasionally took me to a small restaurant in the Wiltshire town of Calne.   It was presided over by an incredibly tall, welcoming man who became a family friend - William Tullberg.  Around that time he started experimenting with home-made mustard, grinding the seeds, as far as I recall, in an old coffee mill.   From this grew this wonderful mustard and relish empire that is marking its 50th birthday.   

It must, then, have been in Tracklements’ infancy, that William brandished an enormous knife, rain dripping from hair, fingers and blade, at my father's and my combined 96th birthday party.  Before him was a huge, succulent ham, which he sliced gleefully despite the grim summer weather.   The ham was, of course, surrounded by a fine array of his mustards.   An uncompromisingly magnificent sight all round.”

Only the Best Ingredients: Our Quince

 We only use the best, tastiest ingredients. That’s why we choose to get our quince, for our Quince Fruit Cheese, from our grower in Somerset. Quince were first recorded in England in about 1275 when Edward I had some planted at the Tower of London. Part of the apple family, not only do they have a beautifully pretty blossom, they’re also high in pectin which makes them perfect for making our Quince Fruit Cheese. Our fruit cheeses are truly a labour of love. Quince Fruit Cheese is wonderful with Manchego and is a must for the cheeseboard.

New Prices - from 1st April

We work with British farmers and spice growers from all over the world - we believe in forging strong relationships as well as paying them a fair price. As you know, our ingredients are always of the highest quality which we believe is one of the secrets to our great taste. We source locally or regionally where possible and remain committed to sourcing the best ingredients and pursuing our environmental policies. Whilst we work hard with our suppliers to minimise any cost rises, we’ve received progressive increases on raw ingredients which we need to pass on. We thank you for your continued custom and support.

New prices will be effective from 1st April 2020. Any orders placed before this date will, of course, be charged at existing prices.
