How it all began...

I am Catherine Piddington. Owner and founder of Piddington Jam.

I have always loved making jam. One year I threw vanilla into the strawberry jam that was bubbling away and the results made my eyes widen - I had jarred Walls' Cornetto! Down the sticky rabbit hole I fell, stitching together all the ridiculous concoctions I could… and so, by February 2013, the foundations of my Jampire were laid.

Jam makes me feel like I'm having a treat at my mother's table again. It brings out that long buried childish innocence, happiness and mischievousness in me, which is what I want everyone who tastes it to feel again. 

Many concoctions have not quite come up to snuff, but I haven't turned my nose up at a potential combination yet. Finding a pairing that triggers a subtle nod and a wry smile is what keeps my shoulder to the wheel...

...Gotcha!
