San Siôr Chutney has really taken off with Bodnant Welsh Food Centre selling it on their shelves. We sent Jamie Oliver a pot and he even tweeted the school saying that it looks ‘beautiful’.

CHUTNEY (9) CHUTNEY (7) Little did we think that our Chutney woulkd end up on the shelves at Bodnant Welsh Food Centre. It really is delicious and contains apples, onions, sultanas, dates, brown sugar, root ginger, spice, sal, pepper and malt vinegar. We had to check the Food Standard Agency guidelines on labeling and we have marked the malt vinegar in red as it is an allergen.

December school of the month: Ysgol San Sior

Congratulations to Ysgol San Sior, our December Kitchen Garden Project school of the month. As the first Welsh school to join the Kitchen Garden Project, Ysgol San Sior is a fantastic ambassador for how food education and enterprise skills go hand in hand. The school has 240 children and keeps a flock of 150 chickens that produce 450+ eggs each week! They won the Welsh Assembly Government backed ‘Best Primary Enterprise Award 2014′ for their egg enterprise, and after one of their unique 7 egg boxes showed up on our desks we can confirm that it might be one of the tastiest initiatives around!

Each of the 450+ eggs per week is stamped with a unique code issued by the Egg Marketing Inspector, and each box is stamped with a unique packing number allowing the school to sell their eggs in nearby shops. In their recent letter to Jamie they told us that each week they have a class go into the chicken coop to collect the eggs. Next they get taken to the shed and inspected by other pupils before carefully getting stamped and placed into their unique egg boxes.

A real selling feature of their 7-egg boxes is that they are made of recycled plastic and are transparent. That means you really get to appreciate the dark brown eggs laid by the Copper-blue marans, the pale green eggs laid by the Cream Legg Barrs, the powder-blue eggs laid by the Lavendar Arucanas, the pure white eggs laid by the Anconas and finally the shades of brown laid by the other hens. Whatever the colour you are guaranteed to get delicious eggs, bought on the day that they were laid by their happy free range hens.

Every child, from nursery through to Year 6 have had a part in the project, from hatching chicks to incorporating chickens into their lesson plans to drive standards in literacy and numeracy.

The school will be on BBC Countryfile on the 14th of December sharing more about their project, and they would love to connect and partner with other schools around the country keeping chickens.

Amazing work, San Sior, be sure to check your mail for some goodies coming your way from our team!
