Get your hands on Jubilee jams

YOU can celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee with a very special, limited edition offer from Essex conserve makers Wilkin and Sons.

The Tiptree company has produced a special Jubilee Orange Marmalade for the occasion and five years ago put aside six jars of this rich, dark conserve made from just Seville oranges and brown sugar.

These six 2lb jars of this limited edition Marmalade have now been packed in a special handmade wooden case and is being auctioned on eBay.

In all, just 2012 jars of the marmalade were made so Wilkin and Sons are expecting lots of offers for this collector's item.

Peter Wilkin, chairman, Wilkin & Sons Ltd. "All the proceeds from the sale of the special box and individual jars will go to local community projects in Tiptree and Tolleshunt Knights."

If you miss out on the case, don't worry you can still pick up the Jubilee Orange Marmalade for £2.95 in Tiptree jam and tea rooms and look out for jars of the Jubilee Strawberry jam too.

There are also a limited number of jars through Tiptree's delivery service at redmoped.com which takes jams and marmalade to locations throughout the UK.
