KATZ FRUTTI DI BOSCO PRESERVES 16 oz. $17.00
That was fast! We now are sold-out but we hear your requests and we are trying to make more...it’s all about our farmers having the perfect fruit just at the right time, and all four berries in harmony!
Here's how it happened...a few weeks back, a long-time customer and friend, Neil, sent me a note after returning from a trip to Sicily where he tasted local preserves called Frutti di Bosco. He was excited to let me know about them and with a not-so-subtle “nudge” he suggested that we might like to try our hand at our version of this traditional offering...cool!
I was inspired so I quickly “googled” the name to learn the following:
Any of several fruits associated with undergrowth, especially blackberry, raspberry, strawberry and red currants. The finished flavor made from the berries of such fruit are called Fruits of the Forest.
I loved that description and immediately set about thinking of our version and decided on “undergrowth” berries that are at the height-of-flavor this time of year…raspberries from Farmer Luis, strawberries and blackberries from Suisun Valley grower Javier, with blueberries from Triple Delight.
The finished preserves are such an enchanting blend of wild berry flavor. The texture is on the softer set side, almost compote like, ready to be simply spooned over plain yogurt (as shown here), or on vanilla bean gelato, panna cotta, cheesecake, or over a simple custard. Or, I can’t imagine a better way to adorn French toast or waffles skipping the syrup, of course (or again, maybe both…quite decadent!).
This is a Limited Release offering and will be gone quickly so you know…when they are gone, they are gone for the year!
Very Limited…3 jar limit per customer, please!
