Tessa, the owner of Emsworth’s Chilli Jam Company has been creating a variety of outstanding chilli jams, sauces and chutneys for years and we have sold them at the shop from the moment we started.  It’s a range that covers all tastes from the mild Chilli Jam to the impressively hot Naga Relish. Each sauce is adaptable and can be added to recipes to supply a warm infusion of chilli heat and give your food an extra dimension.

These award-winning, handmade, gluten-free chilli products are carefully made in small batches to retain colour, texture and flavour. Using the finest and freshest ingredients with nothing artificial added, they are all suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
