Beewel Sources Delicious Preserves and Chutneys from Kotgarh Fruit Bageecha in Malani, Himachal Pradesh
When it comes to preserving the goodness of fruits, there are few places in India that can match the quality of products coming out of the Kotgarh Fruit Bageecha in Malani, Himachal Pradesh. Nestled amidst the scenic beauty of the Himalayas, this orchard produces some of the finest fruits in the country, including apples, cherries, wild apricots, plums, kiwis, and oranges.
What’s more, the products made from these fruits are not just delicious, but also sustainably sourced and ethically produced. Beewel, a company that prides itself on sourcing organic and locally produced foods, has partnered with the mountain women of Kotgarh to bring their handmade preserves and chutneys to a wider audience.
The women of Kotgarh are known for their skill in preserving the seasonal bounty of fruits that grow abundantly in the region. Using traditional techniques passed down through generations, they create products that are full of flavour and made with the utmost care. From tangy apple and naga chutney to sweet cherry and plum preserves, there’s something for everyone in their range of offerings.
One of the unique products made by these mountain women is the Rum Plum Preserve, which combines the rich, warming flavours of rum with the tart sweetness of plums. This is a perfect accompaniment to a cheese board or a slice of crusty bread.
Another standout product is the Wild Apricot Preserve, made from the fruit of the apricot trees that grow wild in the region. This preserve has a bright, citrusy flavour that pairs well with creamy desserts or as a topping for yogurt.
The Pahadi Apple Chutney is another must-try product, made with tart apples, ginger, and spices. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a hearty meal, adding a touch of sweetness and heat to your favourite dishes.
