Peach Chamomile Spoon Preserves

Update: We're updating this farmette special with a kiss of chamomile - from only two trees, when it's gone, it's gone.

One year ago: (!) It's been a fertile year on our little farmette as we gratefully expect our first child in December after a long & winding journey -- the peach trees have taken note. Our two trees were loaded with rosy fruit this year, unusual for the islands, where the summers aren't quite hot enough and just about anything can stymy the flowering period.  So we're sharing our special, ultra small batch reserve, Homestead Peach preserves with you to celebrate.  There's no need to gussy these up: it's just organically grown handpicked peaches from our very own trees, organic unrefined cane sugar, and a squeeze of fresh organic lemons.  Lightly set with chunks of sweet peaches, it doesn't get much better than this (a bit like life is feeling right now looking down at my expanding belly...) 

 

ingredients:  peaches, organic cane sugar, organic lemon juice, chamomile flowers. 

7.75 ounces.

Handmade on Orcas Island

Our line of cutting and spoon preserves are tailor-made for sweet & savory pairing.  A natural accompaniment to cheese, our preserves upgrade your cheese platter to sublime.  They bring a sense of gravitas to any meal– an appreciation for tradition: for the bounty the land provides, and the simple human ingenuity that inspired us long ago, to preserve it.

Cutting preserves are ‘membrillo’ style highly concentrated fruit purees – perfect for cheese & charcuterie pairing.  Known as ‘fruit cheese’ in Europe, this classic, slow cooked recipe was originally used to take advantage of fallen orchard fruit.  Our recipe is softer than you’d find in Europe & spreadable– but holds it’s shape perfectly on a cheese platter (or layered between two cookies).  We don't add pectin to quicken 'set up' - we rely solely on the magic of fruit, sugar, time and evaporation to concentrate our preserves.  This means you get a heck of a lot more fruit.  Smooth and rich, these are also great flavor starters for glazes, vinaigrettes, sauces and fillings.

Spoon preserves, more like a traditional jam, have a softer set than our cutting preserves, but with lots of great texture.  Super fruit forward, these are 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 - all eyes on the fruit in the middle of a snowy winter).
