New Zealand-made fruit pastes have a range of tangy and intense flavors using real fruit and natural ingredients. Rutherford Y Meyer's fruit pastes will freshen and cleanse the palate and are ideal accompaniments to cheese and can be used to make nice fruity sauces as well. They are free from wheat, dairy, fat and cholesterol, but rich in flavor and fiber.
There are 6 lovely varieties available: Quince for mild cheeses, Fig goes well with sheep and goat cheese, Plum a great combination with aged cheddar and Gouda, Pear is lovely with blue cheeses, Cherry for Camembert and goat cheeses and Apricot for soft-ripened cheeses, like Camembert and brie. But these award winning fruit pastes go well with any combination of cheese.
The small tubs only hold 4.2 ounces of the fruit paste, so you can easily have a variety on your cheese board and you will experience that fruit and cheese is a match made in gourmet heaven.
