It has been a busy week for us here at Ballymaloe Foods. The first few batches of our Cranberry Sauce are hot off the cookers as we begin to plan the annual (I won’t mention the dreaded C-word as it is not yet Hallowe’en!!) winter demand. Yes this time of year does mean we make THOUSANDS of our ‘Mini Jars’ for Gift Packs. Extreme patience is always required for this and our team have been very calm and collected as they were tasked with assembling these Gift Packs.
In case you didn’t know, October 7th is National Potato Day…a whole day dedicated to our favourite national treasure!
