Scotch BBQ presents us with moral and ethical dilemmas. You see we feel obliged to advise you that there are a number of our customers who are completely and utterly addicted to this condiment. We have heard stories of people on a massive sugar high strung out on Scotch BBQ just repeatedly saying the word "pork". It takes over whole families, starting with middle-aged men who like to BBQ. However, within a week grannies are putting it on their ham, grandkids are dipping their nuggets in it, and the trendy ladies who lunch are pretending to be sticking to Slimming World whilst secretly upending Scotch BBQ onto their prawn sandwiches.
Hilda is a farmer’s daughter, born and raised on a dairy farm where growing the family food was the norm. In between helping with herds, Hilda qualified as an architectural technologist and worked for major corporate clients. With marriage and motherhood, Hilda has returned to her other love - brewing and baking from her Summerhill home. Her cooking has become the award winning artisan food range Hilda’s Homemades.
Growing and sourcing local ingredients Hilda devises gorgeous fresh twists to traditional Irish staples- tangy lemon marmalade with beech leaf noyau, delicious lemon & spiced wild elderberry vodka marmalade, damson chutney, aromatic & spiced plum chutney to name just a few. As glazes, dips or appetisers or just all you need for your more modern yummy lunch or afternoon tea, Hilda’s Homemades add rich, quality flavours to any store cupboard.
