Citrus Scented Shinko Pears
Shinko Pears which hold their crisp texture, are stemmed, cored, cut and combined with a fine dice of candied tangerine peel, lending them a brilliant brightness. This is a deeply luxurious jam which celebrates two fruits indigenous to Japan and is an opportunity to give back to a country that has given me so much inspiration over the years...
Due to their relatively high price and the large size of the fruit of cultivars, these pears tend to be served to guests or given as gifts, or eaten together in a family setting. It all seems fitting.
All of our sales from this jam are being donated to Shelterbox in support of their continued work rebuilding Japan after the devastating earthquake and tsunami on March 11th.
