Fresh & Fermented Plum Preserve

Vegan | Gluten-Free | Dairy-Free | Nut-Free | Soy-Free

Our unique “fresh and fermented” preserves combine the savory tanginess of lacto-fermented fruits, with the rich sweetness of a traditional jam… sweet and savory in perfect harmony.

Fresh + Fermented Plum Preserve is a unique jam created using a two-step process. In late spring, fresh greengage (unripe) plums are fermented in the style of umeboshi, with red shiso from our friends at the Somerville Community Growing Center. In peak summertime, fresh red (ripe) plums are used to create a traditional jam, and then combined with the fermented greengage plums to complete our "fresh and fermented” preserve.

Refrigerate after opening.

Recipe Ideas...
- Incorporate into dressings and sauces as a tangy, sweet element
- Use the whole pieces of fruit in a baked good, like muffins or thumbprint cookies
- Add a teaspoon of the syrup to seltzer for a seasonal soda
