The Green Apron is an artisan preserve company run by Theresa Storey, and is based on a small farm in Ballingarry, Co. Limerick. They produce a range of jams, marmalades, chutneys, ketchups, sauces, herb mixes, butters, mustards and pickles using secret family recipes.


Born in Detroit and raised in Co. Clare, Theresa Storey now lives in rural Co. Limerick, where she puts her botany degree to good use growing fruit and vegetables and managing the family orchards, gardens and woodland. She uses the fruit of her labour to make fabulous preserves for The Green Apron, which has won many national and international food awards. She also teaches sustainable living and tries to keep up with her three kids. This is Theresa’s first book and showcases her use of fruit through the year from fabulous preserves to luscious pies.

The Green Apron preserves have won 7 international Great Taste Awards and 9 Blas Na hEireann Awards and The Green Apron is listed in the McKennas Guide and in Georgina Campbells Guide.

Fruit on the Table was released in May 2016 and can be purchased in all good book shops now.
