KATZ FLAVOR KING PLUOT PRESERVES - Limited Release 16oz. $18
"For my money, KATZ makes the best jams in the country." Corby Kummer, The Atlantic
I do enjoy telling the story that it took me awhile to become a 'convert' to this fruit as I am quite the food 'purist' and poo-poo so-called hybrid fruits. But, a few years ago I was talking with one of our favorite fruit growers, Farmer Eddie, when he cut up some fruit that he thought I should try. It looked like a plum so I was excited to give it a go…WOW, I was blown away as the complexity and depth of flavor was simply astounding…they were just screaming to be cut up and made into KATZ preserves. When I eagerly asked what it was, he proudly let me know it was a Flavor King Pluot, I was sold!
And I am not alone. Dave Wilson Nursery, the largest fruit tree grower for home gardens in the United States, for the last 20 years they have held an annual fruit tasting of over 1700 varieties…tasters must be very full when they are done! They recently compiled the Consistently High Scoring Varieties List and guess what fruit came out number one…Flavor King Pluot…wow!
Dark bramble-berry fruitiness…rich, sweet-tart flavor of the plum with notes of cherry; pleasant supple texture with an intense coral color from the flesh and deep ruby from the skins; bright and perky on the palate. Nothing else is quite like it…remarkable!
This is one of our personal favorites. This special variety has a small window period of availability, and this year we scurried to make all we could!
Serving Suggestions: Break out the warm biscuits, make your Sunday waffles slathered with these preserves; or how about some crepes or blintzes filled with ricotta and topped with KATZ Flavor King Pluot Preserves!
Our preserves are made the old-fashioned way...we do not use any preservatives, period! Please enjoy every spoonful of our fresh fruit preserves, and refrigerate after opening.
