Unique, local and delicious are all good words to describe the products offered up by the crew at Appleflats, headed by a pair of Wellesley brothers.
Their zippy jellies and drinks are great for entertaining and daily culinary adventures – we’ve been enjoying their products on cheese boards, glazing cakes and lots of canapés!
As an entrepreneur it is great to see others passionately thinking outside of the usual, constantly reinventing marketing and product development while keeping engaged with their clients, visiting regularly and checking up on their product.
This commitment is impressive but shows passion and belief in their product. Locally made maple drinks and spiced jellies are also available. This recipe for Crabapple-glazed Chicken Breasts comes courtesy of the Appleflats team.
Sweet and simple, this recipe would make a great accompaniment to chicken, salmon or pork.
