The trio of flavors in A Taste of Christmas Past Holiday Gift Pack are as follows:
Damson Plum Preserves:
Images of sugar plums won’t be the only things dancing once you taste these preserves! Your tastebuds are sure to be waltzing with joy after just one bite! If you are looking for something a little different for your holiday breakfast table, you should offer Damson plum preserves this year! Serve with warm biscuits, scones or muffins and you cannot go wrong. Try them as a topping on some buttermilk pancakes or crepes and see how quickly you go through the jar!
To spice up your holiday cookies for the neighborhood Christmas cookie swap, try making some ‘Santa’s thumbprint’ cookies and use our Damson plum preserves for the jam in Santa’s thumbprint. Not only are plums associated with the holiday season but also, the combination of flavors will be magnificent!
Cranberry Orange Marmalade:
Who doesn’t think of fruit swags made from fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks and dried orange slices at Christmas time!? The aroma created by the orange slices coupled with the cinnamon sticks is magical!! I always try to make a few because the citrus combination reminds me of Christmas past!
Our cranberry orange marmalade is certainly one of my favorite holiday marmalades to serve for breakfast. It is a very popular New England combination as well. Nothing can beat the punch of tart cranberries coupled with the unique flavor of diced orange peel. However, when you surrounded this pairing by a sweet orange flavor, it compares to nothing else!
Try something new: Not just for breakfast anymore- goes great as a glaze for your Christmas turkey too!
Figgy pudding may not be as popular at Christmas time as it was in the 1800’s but believe me, our Fig Preserves certainly are! Although our all natural fig preserves are a must for the holiday season, they are definitely great to have all year too!
Sweet and delicious, figs are a healthy addition to your diet so you don’t need to feel guilty about eating them. One of my all-time favorite holiday appetizer recipes that we enjoy every Christmas Eve, is when I unroll some puff pastry into a baking dish, place a block of brie cheese and then cover it with our fig preserves. (Chopped walnuts are a nice touch too, if you like nuts but either way, it is delicious). Bring sides of puff pastry up to cover the cheese/preserves and seal pastry together at top. Bake according to puff pastry directions and once pastry is browned. Serve warm with crackers. I always enjoy tearing off a piece of the pastry and covering it with some melted cheese and fig! Yummy!
Our fig preserves contain simple ingredients and have a delicious thick consistency with a rich flavor, that is perfect to serve at your holiday breakfast too!
