Pear Preserves with Grains of Paradise
A cross between a jam and fruit butter with small chunks of pear with great "pear” texture. Originally from West Africa, grains of paradise is a unique ingredient related to the ginger family with notes of citrus & cardamom. They are little seeds that when ground, have the aroma of a fresh coconut lending an exotic spice to the preserve. The flavor is often recognized as something closer to the flavor of black pepper than ginger giving the jam a slightly spicy quality. This one is best paired on english muffins or on a cheese board.
