Island Plum Spoon Preserves
Orcas Island’s beloved Italian Plums (Prune Alley, in the middle of town, used to be a country lane through an orchard of Italian prune trees) shine in this well-rounded preserve-accented with garden grown anise hyssop. Deep purple, rich, with just a hint of licorice. Try it lathered on toast, dolloped on dessert, or straight from the spoon.
Spoon preserves are like a traditional jam. 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 enjoyed 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).
Ingredients: Italian plums, organic cane sugar, organic lemon juice, anise hyssop.
