Santa Rosa Plum Jam with Gin & Rosemary
Tart plums tempered by gin's natural spice
Santa Rosa plums lend this jam its deep mahogany hue and smooth, jammy texture. The natural tartness of these plums is beautifully balanced by the dryness and spice of gin, imparting a round and biting flavor to this jam. A subtle note of rosemary offers a grounded, earthy edge; imagine hints of juniper berries, black peppercorns, caraway, and star anise, all provided by the complex flavor of gin. This is a truly magnificent jam, perfect as a gift for the host with a chunk of Humboldt Fog cheese and a bottle of red.
To serve: Pair with an aged sheep cheese; top crackers with ricotta
Please use caution when enjoying this jam, as it may contain pits!
