This conserve is similar to one I have been making for years, but a few tweaks make it safe for canning. Delicious with the traditional meal, it is also fantastic on sandwiches and heated and spooned over ice cream.
Nutty Blondes--beautiful, lovable, tons of fun. Talking about cherries here. Almond and cherry are a much loved flavor combo. Here they are together again for the very first time in yellow cherry jam studded with bits of candied almond.
On day one of the Punk Domestics trip to Italy in January, 2012, we made three kinds of preserves with Marzia Brigante: Quince jam, pear jam with aromatic spices and savor, a conserve made with apples, pears, quince, nuts and saba.
Technically a conserve, savor is a melange of quince, apple and pear, with almonds and walnuts, plus any other nuts that you like; we used hazelnuts. Recipe by Marzia Brigante from the Punk Domestics trip to Italy in January, 2012.
