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.

Happy cooking!

Crabapple-glazed Chicken Breasts

  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup Appleflats
  • crabapple jelly
  • 2 Tbsp. dark soya sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. Nith Valley
  • Apiaries honey

In a small baking dish, season chicken skin side up.

In a bowl, stir Appleflats Crabapple Jelly, honey and soya sauce. Then layer the mixture over the chicken generously or until desired.

Heat oven to 375F and then place your uncovered baking dish in the oven for 30-35 minutes, basting one or two times until it is done.

 Serve with French bread, roasted herb and garlic potato and salad.
