KATZ FLAVOR KING PLUOT PRESERVES - Limited Release 16 oz. $17
"For my money, KATZ makes the best jams in the country." Corby Kummer, The Atlantic
The Story: Flavor King Pluot has a small window period of availability, and this year we scurried to make all we could.
I do enjoy telling the story that it took me awhile to become a 'convert' to this fruit as I am generally quite the food 'purist' and poo-poo any so-called hybrid fruits with an up-turning of my nose to show my 'food snob' nature (my family would attest to this!).
The Fruit: A few years ago I was talking with one of our favorite fruit growers, Farmer Eddie, when he brought out his knife and began to 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 sheepishly let me know it was a Flavor King Pluot (the sly fox knew my bias in advance). What could I say as he tricked me into tasting this jewel and I was a convert!
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. Quite simply…remarkable!
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!
Comes beautifully packaged in our proprietary KATZ paper wrap.
Limit 4 per customer, please! (Sorry, no discounts on this selection)
