Fresh Broiled Peaches with delicious Cherry Chai Jam & topped with a creamy Creme Fraiche. This combination is amazing with soft and tender peaches caramelized with the Cherry Chai Jam on the broiler for 6 to 10 minutes.
The concentration of flavors in the cherry spread come through because Cherry Chai Jam, which is available here in our online shop, is made with tart, bright, New York sour cherries that are bathed in the warming traditional chai spices of cinnamon, cardamon, and ginger. Brins collaborated with their Brooklyn neighbors Dona Chai, the best there is and a fellow small batcher making chai tea through fresh ground spices every day. It is a flavorful collaboration. Doesn’t that sound good?
