Made in traditional open pans and packed with crunchy British veg, tart Bramley apples and gentle spices, this pickle is the perfect partner for cheese and cured meats.

Sarah Darlington originally created this tangy pickle for her farmer husband Tim to have with his daily Ploughman’s lunch. It took seven attempts before Tim finally gave it his seal of approval, hence it’s name – Ploughman’s Pickle No.7.

Based in Cheshire, Mrs Marion Darlington and her daughters, Sarah & Wendy, have been producing high quality preserves for nearly 40 years. It all began in 1981 when Marion’s husband, Tom, encouraged her to make a big batch of lemon curd with the extra eggs from their farm and see if she could sell it to the local shops. It turned out that her husband wasn’t the only fan, and the orders began to fly in, along with requests for homemade jams and chutneys.

By 1985 demand had increased so much that Mrs Darlington enlisted the help of her daughters and ladies from the local village, and her husband converted part of the farm into a kitchen. Today Darlington's is still a family-run operation and although the company has grown, the aim remains the same - to craft delicious products with a real homemade taste.
