Alchemic Kitchen is a social enterprise based in Merseyside which works alchemy with surplus food. We specialise in making wonderful preserves from locally-sourced food that would otherwise be wasted. We step in to rescue food from local farms or markets which has been rejected for being too big, too small, too soft, too ripe, too hard, or simply too much, and use it to whip up unusual and delicious treats and feasts. In the process, we work with local people to enhance their skills and connect communities to the value of good food.
All of our products are available to purchase through a subscription service. By subscribing, you will receive monthly parcels containing a selection of our latest products, along with an update from us and a recipe card. You can choose from either a sweet, savory or mixed selection. Popular products include jams, chutneys, ketchups, pickles, tisannes and much, much more.
Each box you buy helps us to train volunteers from community groups ranging from military veterans to people in recovery from addictions or mental health problems. They join us on farms to rescue fruit and vegetables at risk of going to waste, and work alongside us to develop kitchen skills and food confidence.
By subscribing to the Alchemic Kitchen you’ll be supporting a fledgling social enterprise and taking part in our story. At the heart of what we do is our belief in valuing food and valuing people. We hope you’ll join us.
You can find our products on Etsy. They will be available from 1st November.
