Juicy, yellow peaches are coupled with orange blossom water, adding layers of floral and citrus complexity all coming together to make an extremely flavorful jam.
After trying fifteen types of peaches for this jam, we chose the succulent June Lady peaches harvested at their ripest. Our peaches come from a family-run organic orchard in the San Joaquin Valley. The June Lady peach is highly flavorful with a good acid balance and a rich meaty flesh, lending itself to the perfectly chunky yet spreadable body for jam.
Our organic orange blossom water comes from Morocco. Used widely in the Middle East, it lends the jam a depth of flavor and complements the floral notes in the June Lady peaches.
Rose Owens, formerly Head of the Cheese Department at Bi-Rite 18th, reports how “[Creamy and bright] Petite Breakfast is based on the breakfast cheese served to sailors at public houses before they set sail… [Bringing] To Peach His Own to the same table…only enhances that sense of ... well-being,” A substantial use of our peach jam as marinade and glaze appears in our recipe for Glazed Ham.
