Fig Preserves are hand made in small batches, with the freshest fruits and finest ingredients to ensure superior quality and excellent taste. A old fashioned preserve is made from large or whole pieces of fruit and are cooked to the point where the fruit is suspended. The texture of the preserves are not as smooth as jelly or jam. Gourmet Preserves are available in 10 oz sizes. We liked them so much we serve them some in our Old Mill restaurant.
