SHE was crowned jampion of the world last year and now this jammy lady is hoping to see the recipes that won her the title published in her own book.

Grandma Marjorie Paulson said she was delighted to win a £5,000 prize in Tate & Lyle’s ‘Baking dream winner’ competition almost exactly a year after her jam was crowned as the best in the world.

The 59-year-old, who was born on Ellesmere Road in Stockton Heath but moved to Shrewsbury with her husband John four years ago, said: “I’m over the moon and can’t wait to get started over the next few months.

“I always write down my recipes when I’m doing them with my grandchildren (who live in Grappenhall) and I’ve recently invented a savoury jam with peppers, chilli tomatoes and paprika that I’ve been demonstrating.

“To see my book on the supermarket shelves is my dream and to be starting a new career at 59 is amazing."

Marjorie, who says all her family are in Warrington with one of her nephews driving over for regular visits from Appleton when he has run out of jam, has also now started her own brewery called Big Shed.
