Elegant Appetizer: High Desert Foods’ Confitures and Cheese

By |

Many of us have an abundance of jams, jellies, preserves, and conserves—some sweet, some savory—lining the shelves of our fridges and pantries. But, here’s a new one to add: High Desert Foods‘ organic fruit confitures, which are similar to preserves but with as little added sugar as possible.

High Desert makes theirs in small, hand-crafted batches with thick pieces of fruit. The offerings, which include hard-to-resist combos like Strawberry-Chardonnay, Peach-Pecan, and Apricot-Amaretto, are as interesting on pancakes as they are on roast pork.

But the confitures are at their elegant best when paired with cheese. Try the Rhubarb-Rose with Vanilla combined with soft, tangy Chevre d’Or; the Apricot-Lavender with the rich, slightly salty Vermont Shepherd raw sheep’s milk cheese; and the Spiced Peach with the buttery, Italian cow’s milk Rebruchon val Susa. (All are available at The Truffle Cheese Shop.)
