The fresh sweetness of plums combines with the dark, earthy flavors of smoked tea in this wonderful compote by Casa Forcello.
This seductive condiment is the creation of Paola Calciolari, a pharmacist-turned-cook who dedicates herself to recreating her grandmother’s classic recipes from Emilia Romagna. Her specialties are rich compotes and spicy mostardas from local fruit, which she slices and candies into preserves. Her hard work pays off into chunky condiments that are incredibly fresh and full of flavor. Their sweet, sometimes spicy taste are perfect to match to fresh cheeses, pates, as well as roasted meats, duck breast and other savory dishes.
Ingredients: plums 70%, sugar, smoked black tea 5%
