Prince Edward Island Preserve Company: Sure To Be A Memorable Experience

One of the most memorable attractions I saw on Prince Edward Island was the Prince Edward Island Preserve Company in New Glasgow.

Kilt-clad owner Bruce MacNaughton greeted our group when we arrived. Through a large window inside, I watched workers make his company's signature low-sugar fruit-laden preserves. Fortunately, test samples help you decide which ones to buy!

The company also makes and sells other items, such as vinegar, syrup and barbecue sauce. I particularly liked the fragrant soaps.

If you get hungry, the Cafe on the Clyde offers sandwiches and homemade ice cream.

New Glasgow is on the River Clyde in north-central Prince Edward Island, where Routes 224 and 258 meet, roughly 15 miles northwest of Charlottetown.

The Prince Edward Island Preserve Company is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, weather permitting, with extended hours from June through late September. The restaurant operates from mid-May through mid-October.
