The Preserve: Sweet aromatic strawberries are meticulously accented by a spirited blend of premium Ancho and Habanero Chiles to give this preserve its distinctly fruity, mildly spicy and immensely fragrant personality. Sublime with Bloomy rind and mild creamy Bleu cheeses and as a decadent topping for cheese cake.
The Pepper: AHN-choh is the sweetest and most commonly used dried chile in Mexico, mainly in preparing the traditional mole sauce. Their mildly piquant and fruity overtones adds an indulgent snappy edge to the sweet floral strawberries.
