Fruit cordials – All the taste without the chemicals
Whether produced from fruit, flowers or herbs, home-made cordials are getting more and more popular. It's not surprising: these cordials, with their unmistakeable taste, put other soft drinks in the shade. The 'Red Rooster' seal of quality guarantees that only top quality original products go into their production. Beet sugar or brown sugar is added to make all types of fruit, flower or herb cordials following ancient recipes. While the fruit, flowers and herbs come straight from the farm, the sugar cannot be produced there. In the case of cordials, 25% of the product may be bought when counted as part of the fruit content. The cordials are bottled with care and sold under the 'Red Rooster' brand name as pure or mixed cordials.
Fruit jams – Packed with fruit
Red Rooster' jams are especially appreciated for their high quality and unrivalled taste. Only fresh sun-ripened fruit processed without additives is used to fill the jars, whether for single fruit or mixed fruit jam. Raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants, plums, apricots, cherries or chestnuts, the variety of hand-picked, top quality fruit made into delicious jams on the farm, is wide. The success of these jams lies in their high fruit content and low sugar content, which lends unbeatable taste. Besides this, after being chopped up, the fruit is cooked with care in order to preserve vitamins, taste and colour.
