Jams & pickles
Here at Calcott we believe (awaiting any challengers!) that other than Tiptree itself we stock the widest range of Tiptree jams, jellies and marmalades. If you can’t find the flavour you want, then you don’t really want jam! They now also offer chutneys, pickles and honeys which are equally delicious.
Butterworths and Tracklements supply the majority of our chutneys and pickles, so we have one for every taste and palette. An onion marmalade to a beetroot and horseradish relish we’ve got you covered.
We have a supply of gorgeous local honey from our people in the know. Hoyles Farm honey from Navestock take care of the hives we have on the farm and produce some truly home grown honey. We also have honey from a nearby from in Navestock (our honey runs out quickly!). John Lacey also supplies honey collected from just outside Chipping Ongar. Taken from early spring it can help to relieve some of those horrible hayfever symptoms. Honey can also be used in cooking and to sweeten drinks.
Marriages, the Chelmsford based millers, make a great quality range of flours which absolutely fly off the shelf. They have been making flour for over 190 years so they know what they are doing!
However, if you fancy something a little different for your breakfast or sandwich, then we have Wessex Mill flours and GR Wrights cake and bread mixes for you to try out.
Cooking sauces & condiments
Whether it be for a British, Italian, Indian, Asian or African inspired meal, we have a delicious pot of sauce or mix for you. Helping you to save time and deliver great taste, it’s a win win. Just don’t tell anyone – we can keep a secret! Tracklements and Stokes have been some of our longest running suppliers and they continue to produce tasty ketchups, sauces, mustards and mayonnaises. Delicious and good value they are a great addition to any table.
For those who want to try something a bit different we now stock the Great British Sauce Company, who produce exactly what they called themselves! They have a delicious tomato ketchup and an unusual (if a little 'marmite' in reaction) tomato and mustard sauce. Give it a try and let us know what you think.
We all try to eat healthily but it's ok to indulge occasionally and we are here to ensure you make the most of it when you do! Boiled sweets, chocolate bars, nougat, sesame snaps and licorice, we have something to make your moment of indulgence worth while!
We also have tins of travel sweets by Simpkins, which are great to have in the car (or at home!) when you are in need of a sugar hit.
Bath Cheese Co produce a tasty range of crackers to perfectly accompany cheese. Charcoal wafers, wheat fingers to good old water crackers (gluten free ones too!) they have something for any occasion.
Cottage Delight produce wonderful breadsticks, both standard and mini flavoured ones which are great for dipping or just nibbling on,
After an in store taste test we chose to go with Pipers Crisps for our crisps and haven’t looked back since. With interesting flavours and good value bags they really are the best crisps on the market in our opinion.
We also stock the very popular Essex based, Fairfields Farm Crisps. Lots of choice!
Self serve Olives
We use a few different suppliers for our olives, picking the best varieties and mixes from each to make sure we have the nicest selection around. You can have as few or as many as you’d like, pick and mix, as they are bought by weight and all the same price. Nice and easy.
