Homemade jars delivered to your doorstep The taste of delicious homemade jam is a luxury you can usually only enjoy in the countryside. Luckily this has changed thanks to MaLi’s Délices, a wonderfully rural gourmet manufactory that produces handmade jars of culinary goodness. TEXT: MARILENA STRACKE I PHOTOS: MALI’S DÉLICES

Initially, Christine Breyer just wanted to cook jams outside the supermarket range, but her unique creations such as ‘Raspberry-CoffeeVanilla’ or ‘Gooseberry-Tonic’ quickly became local favourites. Therefore, she did not stop there: “Each time I had too much fruit, I soaked it in alcohol to make liqueurs,” Breyer adds. What started as a hobby turned into a little manufactory on her farm in the German biosphere reserve of Bliesgau. The reason her jams, liqueurs, chutneys, chocolates and pesto taste truly homemade is simple: because they are. Each batch is made from only five to six kilograms of locally sourced produce and does not contain any additives.

Breyer cooks like our grandmothers did, which means her food contains less sugar compared to their supermarket equivalents. “The most popular fruit spreads are ‘Strawberry-White-Chocolate’, ‘Blackberry-Raspberry’ and ‘Plums in port with walnuts’,” says Breyer. “For cheese platters, our red onion paste is great.”

The MaLi’s Délices newcomer walnutpesto received two out of three stars by Brussels’ prestigious test institute iTQi. Recently, Mango-Ketchup was added to the menu and soon there will be more vegetarian spreads and a vegetarian seasoning sauce. There is the right jar of deliciousness for everyone, made with a lot of love and true passion for outstanding food. Go taste it. From left to right: Christine Breyer in the manufactory.
