Sour Cherry Pomegranate Conserve


Sour Cherry Pomegranate Conserve with Cocoa, Mahlab & Orange Flower:

Ingredients: dried Sour Cherries, Sugar, Water, Apples, Lemon Juice, Pomegranate Juice, Cocoa, Orange Blossom, Pepper, Spices, Mahlab Seed Powder, Salt

A quintessentially Persian preserve with Oregon sour cherries and a spice blend incorporating notes of cocoa, orange flower and pepper. Orange flowers are perfumed with intense notes of honey and clove so pairing them with chocolate makes perfect sense to us! The pit of St. Lucia cherries or “mahlab” is finely ground to intensify the natural almond flavors of the cherry. Best when paired with dairy, game or nuts.

Succulent dried sour cherries and diced Granny Smith apples cooked in a slurry of fresh pomegranate and lemon juices with no added colors, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, pectin or MSG. This mahogany-colored jam is sticky, luscious with deep flavors and is adaptable to various diets – fat free, gluten-free, meat-free; nut-free; and, vegan friendly.

One of our most versatile products, the Sour Cherry Conserve is ideally to suited to soft cow, goat and sheep’s milk cheeses. Slather onto a smoked duck sandwich or with your favorite pâté. Serve it alongside roasted duck or venison. Keep it simple – spoon into yogurt and top with a few cardamom seeds or pistachios for crunch, and you have a delicious breakfast. Dribble onto roasted sweet potato wedges or over vanilla ice cream.
