Figs, dates and pears, oh my!
Get to know fruit in a whole new and flavourful way
Though most fruits are best simply eaten fresh out of hand, cooking with them often brings out their natural sweetness, and a richer, deeper flavour.
Our Grilled Ginger Pear Gouda Sandwiches start with homemade Ginger Pear Chutney. The sweet and tangy chutney is then slathered onto rye bread and topped with smoked Gouda before being grilled – you don’t need tomato soup for this one!
Our Fig and Walnut Loaf is a nottoo-sweet treat that’s perfect with a cup of tea or coffee. This recipe can be made ahead and frozen, so a warm baked-good is always on hand.
If you’re feeding a crowd, try our Cheese-Stuffed Dates and Pepper Jelly. Boursin cheese and pepper jelly make this appetizer a breeze, while tasting like a high-end hors d’oeuvre.
