Shiro Plum with Mint Spoon Preserves
A 2019 and 2016 Good Food Awards Winner, this Asian varietal is impossible to resist, especially as paired with bright mint freshly picked from the kitchen garden. This preserve vies for most versatile – awesome with toast, excellent with cheese, and perfect for anything you’d use a mint sauce on (pork, chicken, or lamb). For a simple appetizer, serve it alongside goat cheese, or gussy it up with a little prosciutto. Serve straight from the jar with pork or lamb chops. Go nuts: reduce wine, butter, shallots, add half a jar plus a pinch of salt and glaze a few duck breasts during the last five minutes of cooking.
Ingredients: shiro plums, organic cane sugar, organic lemon juice, mint leaves.
Handmade in the Pacific Northwest.
Spoon preserves are super fruit forward, made using classic French techniques, including a long soak to draw out the most from the fruit's juices. They are equally at home on toast, dessert, cheese, or straight from the spoon (the way preserves were originally enjoyed - unadorned).
