'Preserved' on Serious Eats

Pink Lemonade Curd

A pitcher of pink lemonade on a hot summer day can bring near instant gratification, but canning pink lemon curd will allow you to enjoy summery flavor in January, when a 90-degree day would be a welcome change from winter. More

Preserved: Raspberry Rose Jam

Raspberry and rose are a natural combination, and not just in grandma's yard. Rather than thinking this of this as a straight one-to-one pairing, the result is a jam with a layered profile. One bite is fruit-forward, the next more floral. The tartness of the berries tempers out the rose, which prevents the jam from having a soapy flavor. More

Raspberry Rose Jam

Raspberry and rose are a natural combination, and not just in grandma's yard. Dried petals from rose tea soften in the juice of red raspberries. The result is this jewel-toned jam, a balance of sweet, tart, and floral flavors perfectly suited to your next batch of scones or shortbread for afternoon tea. More

Millionaire's Cherry Rhubarb Jam

A three to one ratio of rhubarb to cherries yields the perfect balance of tart and sweet. Half a vanilla bean and a generous splash of orange liqueur make for one fancy jam. It would be delicious over waffles with a dollop of crème fresh, or sandwiched in a biscuit with a wedge of brie. More

Preserved: Chocolate Pear Jam

I am a firm believer that chocolate counts as a breakfast food. So when I saw the recipe for Chocolate Pear Jam in Mary Tregellas' book, Homemade Preserves & Jams, I knew I had to make my own version immediately. To give the recipe my own spin, I added a big splash of amaretto. The flavor combination of rich chocolate, juicy pear, and nutty almond is absolutely incredible. More

Cara Cara Orange Marmalade

This Cara Cara orange marmalade is all about comfort. Tangy chunks of peel, a whiff of honey, and a hint of spice from my secret ingredient, herbal tea, offset the sweet flesh of the oranges. I used Twinnings Hebal Unwind, but feel free to substitute whatever you have on hand. Try it on English muffins or crumpets. More
