Tiptree Preserves are made with the freshest fruit and contain no artificial ingredients. Tiptree keeps as much of the whole fruit as possible in its products, maintaining its natural goodness with the same painstaking recipes used since Victorian times. The Quince is native to warm-temperate southwest Asia. This fruit is related to apples and pears, and like them has a pome fruit.

The Wilkin family have been farming for three hundred years on their 1,200 acre property in Tiptree, Essex. In 1885 A.C. Wilkin began producing jams and preserves setting high standards for himself and his staff. Four generations later Peter Wilkin continues his great grandfather's dream to ensure that only the best quality fruits are chosen to produce a variety of delicious products. Fruits are picked, cooked with pure sugar syrup until set and packed within hours to capture the perfect taste. Employees at Wilkin and Sons take pride in being part of an independently owned family business that continues to create the highest quality jams and preserves which are enjoyed by many all over the world today. Shown here is Tiptree's Quince preserve. Quinces are a pear like fruit, which is not usually eaten raw. It does however make into a delicious preserve with a unique subtle flavor. Wonderful served at tea time or at breakfast in lieu of marmalade.
