Donut Peach with Lime Spoon Preserves

13.00

The second release in our Okanogan Collection, this was super fun to make. We're pretty partial to donuts in general, but when they come shaped like a peach, and taste like a peach, we're floored. Introducing our 'Donut' Peach with Lime Preserves - glorious heirloom Saturn peaches (aka 'Donut') grown meticulously & naturally by Smallwood Farms in Okanogan, Washington, shaped like a donut & accented with organic lime juice. Perfectly suitable for adults, this jam reminds Audra of a certain super hot summer spent mostly in the backyard with her best friend, store bought peaches, seven-up, ice, a blender, and a boombox. It's THAT good. Nowadays she'd recommend pairing it with stinky cheese (Taleggio!!) and salty meat (coppa, coppa, coppa, but really, coppa). 

 

ingredients:  Smallwood Farms donut peaches, organic cane sugar, organic lime juice.

7.75 ounces.

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).
