KATZ PLUM PRESERVES - Casselman Variety 16 oz. $18
"For my money, KATZ makes the best jams in the country." Corby Kummer, The Atlantic
The Story: We use several varieties of plums during the summer season depending on the timing each one is harvested. At present, we are offering the Casselman Plum variety.
The Fruit: These luscious plums come from farmers Frank and Michelle at Bera Ranch in Winters. They have been growing heirloom stone fruit for over 25 years and are committed to keeping them going. The Casselman is an improved, late season Santa Rosa plum hybrid with a bright red skin, deep amber flesh and plenty of flavor. The Casselman is one of the so-called Japanese plums, which is a bit of misnomer since its lineage—like other Japanese plums–can be traced back to China.
The Taste: Very balanced flavors full of sweet spice, and a pleasant but forward tart finish. The natural pectin in the fruit leaves a smooth but firm texture with a distinctive rich quality!
Serving Suggestions: Try them on warm scones or biscuits, or on an English muffin with cream cheese. Also makes a delectable condiment for your fall holiday glazed ham, roasted turkey or pork loin. Or, make the absolutely best sandwich with our homemade Roasted Almond Butter and a slathering of KATZ Plum Preserves (we call that an AB&J around here).
