Marvelous marmalade maker
A MARVELOUS marmalade maker from Backwell has scooped a barrel full of awards at an international competition.
Edmund Goodland, of Rodney Road, entered five preserves in the World Original Marmalade Competition held in Dalemain, in Cumbria, winning a gold prize for his chunky marmalade, a silver for his lime, two bronzes for Seville and a merit for his marmalade for the Queen.
The 74-year-old grandfather-of-two beat off stiff competition from 1,700 entries from across the globe.
Wife Katharin said he was ‘delighted’ with his latest success after winning three prizes last year.
The retired butcher was also the overall winner of a National Trust chutney competition held in October, meaning his pickle will be sold at stately homes all over the country.
