Rutherford and Meyer
"I first discovered Rutherford and Meyer fruit pastes at my local grocery and marveled at their different flavors, such as pear, fig, plum and the more often seen quince. As soon as I got them home, I found that way more than being great with cheese, these pastes are a perfect chef's companion, as a base for glazing sauces, or just spread over fish or meat while cooking so the delectable and pure fruit melts into the flesh."
In their own words…..
