Apley Farm Shop sells tomato ketchup & tomato pasta sauces, handmade in Worcestershire by A Little Bit Co. Creator, Sophie Lane Fox, just emailed me this recent write up in the Daily Mail where her ketchup won 9/10. I promoted them at the Apley Harvest & Craft Fair on Saturday & think they’re delicious. She also sells dressings which can be used on salads or as marinades for meat. Here’s what Sophie says about A Little Bit:

 ‘’We only ever use fresh grown herbs in A Little Bit’s dressings & sauces. Made with all natural, wholesome ingredients and with no hidden nasties – they’re exceptionally tasty too! Delve into the magnificent world of herbs, all freshly packed into every one of our bottles – it’s almost like you picked them yourself.

Green fingers run in my family. My father & uncle are experts in the world of horticulture, so a fascination with gardening rubbed off on me from an early age. Combined with my love of cooking, I continue to be inspired by the incredible versatility of fresh herbs. These amazing plants can transform a simple sauce or dressing into something else a little bit more extraordinary!

You don’t need boundless space to strike up a meaningful relationship with herbs either – a little pot on the windowsill & a drop of water, does the trick. I always have a wide selection of fresh herbs growing within arm’s reach of my kitchen.

My first recipe was based on a secret family recipe. This was adapted by adding different herbs & natural ingredients mostly picked just outside my backdoor. With a trail of leaves & sprigs in my wake, I eventually found something that was… a little bit better… my Red Onion & Parsley Dressing!

Encouraged by friends & family & before you could shout ‘thyme’, my dressings were soon in hot demand & I found myself busy brewing & bottling!  As my recipes matured, my idea for fresh & natural dressings took root – A Little Bit was born!

Each A Little Bit bottle is full of goodness with a delicious home-made flavour. All are 100% free of Gluten, preservatives, colourings & additives & only use fresh herbs.’’ 

Dressings are all RRP £4.50; Sauces are all RRP £3.75
