The story behind the recipe
Confiture Parisienne has teamed up with Fadel Imendjerioune, a lover of exceptional teas who founded the Artefact House after ten years at Mariage Frères.
From this hand to hand work was born a delicate recipe: Earl Grey tea jelly. It can be mixed with savoury or sweet, all day long.
Created from a blend of teas from China and Sri Lanka, this recipe with subtle citrus flavours is naturally scented with a precious bergamot oil. A very English classic to be enjoyed for breakfast on hot scones or smoked salmon. Jar 100G.
Sugar content: 57g per 100g.
Tasting tips on scones, muffins, toast or brioche. SAVOURY: with smoked salmon or foie gras
In 2015, to revive this Parisian tradition, Nadège Gaultier and Laura Goninet founded Confiture Parisienne with the desire to create exceptional jams using products that are just as exceptional. From ancient times, the "fines bouches" have developed various recipes for preserving fruit by cooking it with wine or honey.
But to taste jams as we know them, we have to wait for the first crusades and the introduction of cane sugar from the Arab world. This luxury commodity allows the transformation of fruit into jam, only reserved for royal tables. At the beginning of the XIXth century, the elaboration of beet sugar democratized this product, in Paris many jam makers opened their shops and supplied themselves with fruit from the surrounding orchards.
Confiture Parisienne recipes have unexpected flavors. But they still are made according to traditional, artisanal methods, without any additives or preservatives. Cooked in small batches in copper cauldrons, each jam is lovingly prepared, with a balance of ingredients that lets each one find its proper place and express its flavor to the fullest.
