Pear Balsamic Spoon Preserves
Crafted with Bartlett pears from heirloom orchards, and reduced down with organic aged balsamic vinegar, these preserves are astounding on Taleggio, Asiago, & blue cheeses. Truly an all-purpose condiment - try it over ice cream. Or play around - add a few glugs of balsamic to a teaspoonful of preserves, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and minced shallots and puree it together for a quick, rich vinaigrette for a salad (topped with blue cheese, fresh pear slices, and crispy shallots). Spoon it over a wedge of Rogue River Blue with wafer thin crackers or fresh pear slices for an intensely satisfying cheese course.
Ingredients: bartlett pears, organic cane sugar, organic quince juice, organic aged balsamic vinegar, organic lemon juice.
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).
