Maple Nectarine

The other preserve that I worked on this week is a Maple Nectarine Preserve.

Pretty straightforward stuff here:

Cut up nectarines.

Bring to boil with sugar, maple syrup, and lemon juice (and Bourbon).

Transfer to ceramic bowl and refrigerate overnight.

Bring back to boil, reduce, check set and put into jars.

As you can see, I’m experimenting with different jars to see what shape I want to sell the preserves in. The little one would be part of a sample set of, say, 5 different preserves.

A tasty little treat from the waning days of summer.
