A Sunset Pantry Award Winner in 2021 and Good Food Awards Winner in 2016 & 2019
Recently named by Sunset Magazine as a 2021 Pantry Award Winner, and a 2019 and 2016 Good Food Awards Winner. This is one of Girl Meets Dirt's very first preserves and needs little introduction. You'll love the brightness of this Asian varietal (an original farmette tree) – and find it pairs fabulously with mint, freshly picked from their kitchen garden. Inspired by a patch of mint growing wild by the Shiro tree- what grows together does indeed, go together.
This preserve vies for most versatile – awesome with toast, excellent with cheese, and perfect for anything you’d use a mint sauce on (pork, chicken, or lamb). For a simple appetizer, serve it alongside goat cheese, or gussy it up with a little prosciutto. Serve straight from the jar with pork or lamb chops. Go nuts! Reduce wine, butter, shallots, add half a jar plus a pinch of salt and glaze a few duck breasts during the last five minutes of cooking.
