Many of us know Wen Chocolates as a go-to spot for decadent treats (like the wonderfully complex violette truffles). But did you know that owner William Poole also makes and sells preserves?

I treasure my jar of the clove-tinged apple, candied ginger, and spice, which can be eaten with cheese, spread on sandwiches, or paired with grilled pork.

Bonus: Check out Poole’s recipe for prosciutto-wrapped pears, which ran in 5280‘s January issue. (His preserves would pair beautifully with this appetizer).
