The fresh herb champions, A Little Bit, have captured the fruity taste of late summer’s hedgerows with the latest addition to their growing line up of condiments, cooking sauces and dips. The sophisticated new ketchup – Freshly Picked Thyme and Blackberry – has arrived just in time to accompany the game season which famously starts on the Glorious 12th and continues throughout the autumn and winter months.
Herbs and spice and all thing nice
This uniquely, complex accompaniment contains a heady mix of aromatics – from freshly picked thyme to the warming hints of cinnamon and nutmeg. The herbs and spices are boosted by the ripest, most succulent blackberries – renowned for their sweet, slightly tart and earthy undertones.
Rich, robust and wonderfully rounded – this vividly coloured, velvety ketchup is the perfect partner for burgers, venison and other game dishes. Made with all-natural ingredients, its is gluten free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Thyme for a change
It’s said that time is a great healer and thyme also has many positive attributes! Associated health benefits include the ability to relieve stress, reduce respiratory issues, boost the immune system and stimulate blood flow. With one of the highest antioxidant concentrations in any herb, thyme has been praised for thousands of years as an overall health booster.
Founder Sophie Lane Fox explains the inspiration behind the new recipe; “I wanted to take ketchup to a new level and create a sauce that had a truly British feel to it. There’s something so nostalgic about blackberries – they evoke fond memories of foraging in the undergrowth for these shiny little jewels. The other joy is that their flavour is really intense; I knew they would work exceptionally well with one of my all-time favourite herbs – thyme. The result is quite unique; its savoury, silky and rich. The perfect accompaniment to robust gamey dishes.”
