Dried Fruits and Nuts

dried fruit & nuts

Always a great stand-by to keep in your kitchen. Use as instant nutrition when you have no time to cook, but wonderful added to your food, both savoury and sweet, cooked or raw. The most popular of our range of dried fruits are available loose, so you can buy as much as you need, easily. We have organic options of most of our exhaustive range.


High quality gelatine adds a whole range of nutrients to your diet. It had lost popularity - probably as a result of general distaste for modern intensive farming practices. We have a range of gelatine from animals that have led healthy, natural outdoor lives, eating their correct diets and so gelatine is back on the menu. Many nutritionists are recommending we eat gelatine, as they have seen benefits to skin, hair, joint health and especially digestion.

We have Pasture Fed Beef Gelatine Powder in two varieties - one that will mix with cold ingredients and not cause it to thicken and gel (Collagen Hydrolysate) and another that is mixed with hot ingredients and as it cools will thicken into a jelly.


We also have Organic Pork Gelatine in sheet form (also called leaf gelatine) that can be used to make all kinds of foods from pork pies to fruits jellies, desserts like panna cotta and home made, healthy chewy sweets - with no nasties at all. Very Useful!

Beans and Pulses

Beans and pulses in cans and dried, organic and non organic - we have a great variety here, you are bound to find what you need.

Unrefined Salts

Salt has always been considered a vital component of a healthy diet. Cultures all around the world have their historic sources for this mineral rich dietary addition and went to great lengths to ensure that they had it.

In modern times we have many health conditions to try to understand and salt consumption has been blamed for some of them. It is worth exploring this subject to make up your own mind what you think. 

Racking the Salt

Our favourite salt, Unrefined Celtic Sea Salt, is from Brittany in France and is still made in the time honoured way using just the sun, wind and time to evaporate sea water in clay lined channels and shallow pools. The resulting salt is complete and has all the minerals in the same balance as the seawater it came from - the same seawater where life originated.

Some people worry about the purity of sea water. This salt carries a French certification to vouch for its purity - Nature & Progress - it is regularly tested and this certification is similar to UK organic standards. We keep this in 1k, 5k and 25k bags, so we can supply bulk if required. 

Fleur de Sel is a special, delicate unrefined salt that crystallises on the surface of the lagoons at certain times of the year, and is carefully collected. It is prized by many gastronomists for its flavour. Again ours carries the “Nature & Progress” symbol.

For those who prefer the unrefined Pink Himalayan Salt, we have that too, in fine, coarse and big chunks that people use for making Sole or dissolve into the bath.
