The Flavor Experience
Supple figs get macerated with black tea for an inky, sweet and balanced jar of preserves. A little bit of darkness can be so delicious...
The Quince & Apple story is as sweet as the preserves themselves - husband & wife team Matt & Clare handcraft artisan preserves and syrups in Madison, Wisconsin. With the intention that these are for pairing, they try and keep the sweetness subtle, the salinity in check and make sure balance is at the backbone of every jar. Besides cheese, try their preserves with yogurt, in sandwiches, mixed into a cocktail, and any way else that you can imagine.
Use as a stark contrast to something pale in color, such as vanilla ice cream or a soft, supple goat cheese. The figgy flavors will be extremely complementary. Or, dab inside a slice of prosciutto or serrano ham and roll it all up for a savory-sweet-meaty snack.
