It’s time to roll out your blankets and fill your wicker basket to the brim for National Picnic Week 18th – 26th June. A wonderfully British tradition, picnicking in the summertime is a joyous occasion to be shared with family and friends – a chance to enjoy the great outdoors whilst dining al fresco on tasty homemade treats and delicious summertime snacks.
A great substitute for traditional sandwiches, why not try our home-made Savoury Picnic Tartlets recipe? Delicious puff pastry filled with our Peach Conserve, sautéed onions and garlic, topped with three cheeses and rosemary.
For something a little sweeter, try making our indulgent Salted Caramel Banoffee Jars. Simple to make and sure to impress, the simple biscuit base topped with our Salted Caramel, bananas and whipped double cream will fast become a family picnic dessert staple.
Our iconic glass jars are not only pretty, but incredibly practical for picnic season, whether using them as chic on-the-go glasses or for storing your all-important salt and pepper in our sweet 30g jars – our gingham glassware is the ultimate picnic ‘go to’.
The picnicking possibilities don’t stop there: fresh and fruity for the Summer, we have introduced Fruit & Crème Chantilly in two gorgeous
Summer fruits - Strawberry and Rhubarb. Beautifully presented in elegant glass pots, these new desserts combine delectable, rich fruit compote – full of generous pieces of ripe fruit - topped with our signature Chantilly cream. Providing a perfect ending for al fresco Summer lunches and dinners, our Fruit & Crème Chantilly two-packs are initially available exclusively from Sainsbury’s stores nationwide at £2.80 rrp.
