Crafted with Bartlett pears from heirloom orchards and reduced down with organic aged balsamic vinegar, founder Audra began making this preserve after discovering her neighbor's 120+ year old Bartlett orchard and their gracious offer to lend the pears in exchange for jam.
We can’t get enough of this on taleggio, asiago and blues. Truly an all-purpose condiment – try it over ice cream. Or play around – add a few glugs of balsamic to a teaspoonful, extra virgin olive oil, salt, and minced shallots and puree it together for a quick, rich vinaigrette for a salad (topped with blue cheese, fresh pear slices, and crispy shallots). Spoon it over a wedge of Rogue River Blue with wafer thin crackers or fresh pear slices for an intensely satisfying cheese course.
Bartlett pears, organic cane sugar, organic quince juice, organic aged balsamic vinegar, organic lemon juice.
Girl Meets Dirt Heritage Preserves are inspired by the long history of orchard keeping on Orcas Island– and a craving for the highest quality, locally sourced, organic fruit preserves nature and careful craft can provide.
Our throwback fruit preserves are made in an old-school style that emphasizes structure and pure, ripe, naturally grown fruit. But we don't fuss– our ingredient lists are short and sweet.
We never use commercial pectin. We believe organic, island heritage fruit, speaks for itself. We pair single varietal fruit with unrefined organic cane sugar, fresh squeezed organic lemon juice, and classically prepare it by hand in
A natural pairing for cheese, our preserves upgrade a cheese platter to sublime. They bring a sense of gravitas to any meal– an appreciation for tradition: for the bounty the land provides, and the simple human ingenuity that inspired us long ago, to preserve it.
