Sheena launched the company in December 2012 and 8 months later is producing 7 types of chilli jam, which she sells at farmers markets, food festivals and through a number of stockists in the West of Scotland and Scottish Borders. And, ‘chilli hot’ off the press news, her ‘Hot Chilli lemon Citrus has just been awarded a gold starby the Guild of Fine Food at the Great Taste Awards. Well done Sheena.
The current range includes ‘Chilli Original’ ‘ Chilli Citrus Lemon’, ‘Chilli Lime and Ginger’, ‘St Clements Chilli’ and ‘Smoked Original Chilli’.
The jams are made using only British Chillies and Sheena hopes that in future she will be growing enough of her own chillies to meet the demand. It was the lack of variety in her local area that started farmers daughter, Sheena growing around 40 varieties of Chillies at home in South West Scotland. From there she began experimenting and as a result Galloway Chillies was born.
Surprisingly many people think the only use for chilli jam is with cold meat and sandwiches but all of the jams are ideal for adding to sauces and casseroles for that extra flavour and kick.
This recipe from http://www.GallowayChillies.co.uk is ideal for a quick but flavoursome meal.

In addition to farmers markets in South West Scotland, Galloway Chillie jams will be available from September onwards at Glasgow’s Partick Farmers Market on the 4th Saturday of each month.
