Pear and Chocolate Jam

Flavor Profile

It tastes a great deal like a slice of pear dipped into chocolate fondue. Thick with hand-cut chunks of golden pears, these preserves are luscious served with pancakes or with hard and soft cheeses. A favorite of those who love the lingering, mellow, low acid sweetness of soft, ripe pears.

Pairs well with Pinot Grigio, Asti Spumante, Bardolino, Bordeaux, Cabernet, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Light Red Wines, Madeira, Rioja, Sancerre, Sangiovese, and White Zinfandel
