Lillie O’Brien established London Borough of Jam in 2011, following five years as pastry chef at St John Bread & Wine. LBJ preserves are made in small batches, and cooked for a shorter/quicker time rather than generic brands, producing an honest, unadulterated flavour that is fruit-driven, rather than sugar-driven. When tasting LBJ preserves you will always taste the fruit first followed by the sugar and a special complimentary flavour. We use natural, unrefined sugars and no commercial pectins. LBJ preserves contain no more than 4 ingredients and are dairy free & vegan.
The preserves combine seasonal fruits – sourced in the UK, France, Italy and Spain – such as Victoria Plums, Greengages, Raspberries, Rhubarb and Seville Oranges with unusual additions such as bay leaf, cardamom, cocoa nibs, lemon verbena, wild fennel pollen and verjuice which we believe enhance the fruit flavours and create natural, respectful combinations. We can supply cafes, restaurants and shops with both small 220g jars and large catering jar’s. We recommend serving LBJ alongside toasted sourdough bread, bowls of hot porridge, layered between cakes and with cheese. Please contact us directly for wholesale prices and our list.
The LBJ London flagship shop is currently open weekends and offers our core range of jams alongside some seasonal specials that are on a monthly rotation. You can stay up to date by signing up to our monthly newsletter below. The London Borough Of Jam recipe book ‘Five Season Of Jam’ is due for release June 7th 2018 and can be pre-ordered here
