We are so lucky to have a company such as Ugly Duck Preserves located on the Sunshine Coast. Their motto is that food should not be wasted, and they therefore source fresh ingredients farm direct, gathering up their imperfect and surplus produce. To Ugly Duck, the taste and freshness of their ingredients are the only qualities that matter, odd shapes and sizes don’t. The result? Exquisite taste derived by an appreciation of fruit grown perfectly in flavour but imperfectly in shape. All products are cooked from scratch in small batches, no nasties, no preservatives and absolutely no artificial flavours. Paired perfectly in our hampers with local cheeses.
