fantasia NECTARINE jam
Our nectarine jam is made from the intensely flavorful fantasia nectarines, grown organically in Lodi. The farmer who grows them describes them as having: "so much flavor it hurts your mouth!"
Nectarines are closely related to peaches and share many of the same traits, although they tend to have smoother skin, firmer flesh, more concentrated flavors, and more distinct aromas.
Sweetly efflorescent, this fruity jam is a delight on toast, stirred into greek yogurt, or baked into a tart. For a savory pairing try it with a tangy cheese like Taleggio.
Much like peaches, nectarines are believed to have originated in China over 2000 years ago. They reached the Mediterranean by about 300 BCE via ancient Persia (hence their latin Prunus persica), and were introduced to America by the Spanish.
Due to limited availability of fruit, we were only able to produce a small amount of this jam, hence the "LIMITED EDITION" label. Please note that LIMITED EDITION jams are only available from our website (and our Emeryville kitchen shop).
