fruit butters (and much, much more!) from Earth and Vine Provisions - now at Tallulah's!

Yesterday I popped into my favorite kitchen store, Tallulah's, to pick up a few tools of the trade.  Lucky for me, I arrived just in time to taste some of their latest goodies from Earth and Vine Provisions! Earth and Vine is a California company that has been making 100% natural sauces, jams, and condiments since 1997.  They are completely free of preservatives, and many of their products are gluten free.  The gals at Tallulah's were sampling the Mandarin Pumpkin Marmalade simply paired with cream cheese and served with crackers.  The spices of fall are so prevalent in this delectable spread, with notes of citrus and cloves.  Of course I left the shop with several jars of this goodness, and plan to re-stock before Thanksgiving company arrives.  For breakfast this morning, I tried the Spiced Fig Pear Fruit Butter, with a bit of Manchego cheese and sourdough toast - blissfully delicious.

The Earth and Vine Provisions website also includes recipes to accompany each of their products.  I can't wait to try the Fig and Pomegranate Brie Tart, using my new fruit butter.  If you live close by,  immediately make your way to Tallulah's downtown, and prepare to be persuaded.  Otherwise, Earth and Vine offers free shipping on orders over $75.00
