Win a Barker's and Whitestone fruit paste and cheese prize packby Lauraine Jacobs
Fruit pastes are a popular condiment on cheese platters. They are made by simmering fruit in a small amount of water, removing the pips or seeds then puréeing. Sugar and spices are added to the purée, which is then simmered for 1-3 hours until thick. The most popular fruit paste flavour is quince, and it should be so thick that it can be cut with a knife.
In stores now is a new range of fruit pastes from Barker’s called Fruit for Cheese. The four flavours are feijoa and pear, blackberry and brandy, quince, and pomegranate and black pepper.
The Listener has three prizes to give away comprising the full range of Barker’s Fruit for Cheese pastes, four Whitestone cheeses that have been paired to each paste, two packets of crackers and a Barker’s cheese knife. (Due to the fragility of the cheeses, winners will be provided with a voucher that can be redeemed online via Whitestone’s website.) Barker’s will send the remainder of the prize to each winner.
