Preserves are one of the ultimate culinary nectares, the result of boiling down fresh seasonal fruit into a bold jewel-toned lava just bursting with concentrated fruity flavour. Adults love it. Kids eat it nearly everyday and babies have it all over their faces. Slather it on bread and butter, sandwich it with peanut butter, spread it on freshly baked scones, or as a dessert topping. However you apply it, it’s one of those classic down-home comfort foods that you can make just about anything taste better.
