Wexford Home Preserves

Producers of traditional preserves here since 1988. In classic style, Ellen O'Leary started making home preserves in her kitchen in 1988 and, soon noticed for their great flavour, they found a ready market.  


She and her husband Sean developed the business, but never gave up on the old family recipes or the traditional open pan boiling method and this - together with the seasonal fruit that Wexford is famous for - is the secret of their success.


Now run by nephew Tom and his wife Laura, with Ellen and Sean still lending a hand, they produce several marmalades as well as a range of jams (including less usual ones like gooseberry and rhubarb & ginger along with old favourites such as strawberry and raspberry) and a Christmas range that includes an unusual orange and honey glaze for ham.


Available from independent shops, some multiples (Superquinn, SuperValu, Centra etc), Ronan's Fish Shop in New Ross, and tourist attractions in the area; supplies some of the more discerning hotels, such as Ferrycarrig Hotel, Wexford.
