Damson Fruit Paste - England Preserves


Location: Bermondsey, England

Seasonally made, small batch preserves made in Bermondsey using locally sourced fruits, these fruit pastes are gently manufactured in order to preserve the maximum flavour and colour from their main ingredients.

A firm paste made from reduced Damson puree and sugar, this is best enjoyed in thin slices.  The intense damson flavour and its balance of acidity with sweetness lends it best to accompanying crumbly, acidic cheeses like Tomme de Savoie, Kirkham’s Lancashire or Duckett’s Caerphilly. Or a gentle lactic cheese like Lingot des Causses or St Jude.
