Salt!

The Droitwich Spa Food and Drink Festival is going to have a creation on the menu that is made using the product that the town is famous for.

The Droitwich Spa Food and Drink Festival is one of the highlights of the year in the town.  This year it’s on the 17th June in the town’s Lido Park and there will be something new on the menu made from the product Droitwich is famous for – salt!

Salt is thought to have been discovered in the area more than 2000 years ago.    The natural brine is ten times stronger than sea water and is rivalled by only the Dead Sea. Two of the area’s famous landmarks are linked to salt The Chateau Impney and the BBC’s Wychbold transmitter. 

Salt production ceased in 1922 but in a step to revive the product the food festival was given permission by Wychavon District Council, who own the rights to the brine, to extract the salt.  The first food produced in around 100 years using salt extracted from Droitwich brine will be available at the Food and Drink Festival.  
Droitwich Salted Fudge was officially launched at the town council annual meeting a few weeks ago.

Justin Bowen, who set up his family-run Wychbold Fudge business, makes his fudge in his family kitchen at home.  He made a test batch and gave some to his wife, who is on Dodderhill Parish Council, to try out on her parish council colleagues. 

Justin said he was honoured and delighted to be asked to create this unique fudge.
