Diamond Princess Peach Conserve - June Taylor
We are constantly amazed at June's delicious creations. This rich conserve starts with hand-cut Diamond Princess Peaches - grown using sustainable agricultural practices - to which June adds just enough sugar to maintain the sweet-tart balance that the natural fruit flavors demand. She gets natural pectin from lemon juice and a touch of orange.
June's Diamond Princess Peach fruit conserve makes a great spread for toast or scones; it also makes a great topping for the blintzes that grace your brunch table; try it as a side for some grilled fish; you can also stir it into your yogurt or cottage cheese.
about the producer
From her kitchen in Berkeley, California, June Taylor takes advantage of the abundance and variety of local, sustainably grown fruit and her English heritage to produce a mind-boggling array of outstanding marmalades and conserves.
She uses the best seasonally available fruits, including those ignored by large-scale producers. No batch of delicious fruit is too small for June. Making every attempt to stay local and organic, she is interested in high quality and good flavor, and so if a particular fruit is substandard or poor she will pass on it that season and try something else.
The fruit is hand cut and then cooked. She adds only minimal amounts of sugar and no pectin, based not on a formula but on taste, and so each batch is different. She would rather produce a soft set preserve in which the fruit shines through than meet some artificial expectation of how stiff it should be. The process is involved and labor intensive, but once you've tasted them you'll wonder why anyone does it differently.
Available in very limited quantities.
