Bar le Duc White and Red Currant Preserves, Two 3 oz Jars
Bar le Duc Currant Preserves are a special occasion indulgence and a delicious accompaniment to foie gras. The currants in Bar le Duc Preserves are seeded by hand with a goose quill. This labor intensive process, which originated in the 14th Century in the town of Bar le Duc in Northeastern France has given Bar le Duc a prestigious worldwide reputation. Dutriez company continues to use the old recipe in which the hand seeded whole currants are submerged into a burning hot currant syrup, a method which allows the fruit to keep its flavor and bright color.
Bar le Duc's historic preserves were originally intended only for the tables of royalty. Jars were offered to princes, dukes, and ladies of the court. This "caviar of fruit" is an amazing match with foie gras or quail, or can be enjoyed as part of an exceptional breakfast.
Once opened, keep refrigerated. Unopened, the preserves will last for 12 months or more.
