Les Confitures a L'Ancienne
Mirabelle Plum Jam
This golden Mirabelle Plum Jam is heavenly. Mirabelle plums are a small, yellow plum that is commonly grown in the Lorainne region of France. They are high in sugar which makes them perfect for jams, pastries and fruit brandy ("eau de vie"). The plums in this jam are harvested at the peak of ripeness, then slowly simmered the old-fashioned way in a copper cauldron, producing a jam that is packed with flavor.
This rich handcrafted jam is best enjoyed over a simple slice of toasted and buttered artisan bread so you can fully experience its lush texture and sweet flavor.
Ingredients: Mirabelles Plums, Cane Sugar, Fruits Pectin, Concentrated Lemon Juice. May contain traces of Nuts and Milk.
Size: 9.5 oz
Andrésy, producer of Les Confitures à l'Ancienne, is a third-generation family business since 1952. These three generations have succeeded each other to create and cook the best jams, in harmony with French traditions and gastronomy.
Their manufacture was originally located in the heart of the largest orchard in the region of Ile de France, a few miles from Paris.
The founder, René Walther, was raised by a Breton nurse who was passionate about the terroir. Together with his wife Jocelyne, they started cooking the fruits in the surrounding orchards and selling them to the neighboring retail shops and market places.
Eventually, René started working with the greatest French chefs and premium pastry chefs to develop original recipes, adapted to the tastes of all these discerning gourmets.
Since then, Andrésy has obtained the Living Heritage Company's label that recognizes a company's work for their excellence and artisanal skills.
Les Confitures à l'Ancienne continues to prepare their jams in a traditional copper cauldron, which guarantees a distinctive full-bodied taste. Their jams are completely natural with no artificial coloring agents, flavorings, or preservatives.
