Pear Tree Preserves
Named for the backyard tree that supplied the initial fruit for the company’s product, Pear Tree Preserves creates sweet and savory jam for any occasion. Currently they source organic ingredients from regional farms and vendors (patronizing the Green City Market). Jams are based on seasonal availability such as blackberry vanilla with honey or apple nutmeg. Pear Tree keeps it simple, allowing the natural sweetness of the fruit to dominate with limited pectin.
