This Shiro Plum with Mint jam was named by Sunset Magazine as a 2021 Pantry Award Winner, and a 2019 and 2016 Good Food Awards Winner. This is one of our very first fruit preserves and needs little introduction. We love the brightness of this Asian varietal (an original farmette tree) – and find it pairs fabulously with mint, freshly picked from our kitchen garden. Inspired by a patch up mint growing wild by the Shiro tree- what grows together does indeed, go together.
This plum jam vies for most versatile – awesome with toast, excellent with cheese, and perfect for anything you’d use a mint jelly on (pork, chicken, or lamb). For an inspired cheese pairing, serve this jam alongside goat cheese, or gussy it up with a little prosciutto for a perfect charcuterie pairing. 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.
