Old-school style beach plum jelly is made without any added pectin. When gathering them in the wild make sure to include some under-ripe berries. A long simmer makes for a good strong set. It's a sticky jelly with a good puckery punch.
Ripe peaches, sweet cantaloupe, a little bit of almonds and voila! A gorgeous summer jam. Peaches are at their height, the perfect partner for the translucent nuggets of ripe cantaloupe in this jewel-toned beauty.
Mostarda di Cremona isn't actually a mustard, rather it's summer fruits preserved in mustard-infused syrup. Use a mix of peaches, pears, plums, apricots, nectarines, quince, cherries, citrus rind. Makes for a beautiful holiday gift.
The soft crunch and fiery bite of kimchi make it a great addition to tacos, pasta, meats, fish, you name it. Great as a snack right out of the jar. Like most food projects, the best kimchi is made with loving hands at home.
