Food for Thought:
Partners Love Peach
When talking to my partners about our products recently, I discovered that we all really love one of our newest which is called Harvest Ginger Peach Spread. The bold combination of sweetness from tree-ripened peaches, the spice of ginger, and the subtleness of spices create a unique flavor of autumn in this versatile spread which is suitable for all occasions. This spread can be used in so many different ways, it’s a good idea to keep a jar in the pantry for when you need just the right ingredient to sweeten your next meal. I asked my partners for their ideas about how they use this decadent spread.
Our partner Teresa admits that she doesn’t really cook, but that doesn’t keep her from serving a dish made with her favorite of our spreads. Even someone who doesn’t “cook” can make something as easy as our Harvest Ginger Peach Spread with our Bellisari’s Phyllo Shells and cream cheese. Just use our ready-to-use phyllo shells according to directions, add a spoonful of cream cheese and a dollop of our Harvest Ginger Peach Spread, and you have yourself a little mouthful of heaven to devour. They’re so good, you might want to double or triple that recipe!
Our partner Michelle loves to use our Peach Spread to make Broiled Pork Chops with Peach Glaze:
Broiled Pork Chops with Peach Glaze
4 bone-in pork chops 3/4 to 1 inch thick
Dry rub of choice or recipe below
1 jar of Bellisari’s Harvest Ginger Peach
Dry Rub Ingredients
3 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoons brown sugar
1.5 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Place the oven rack in the middle of the oven, and place the oven on broil. Line a sheet pan with foil or parchment paper and place an oven safe cooling rack on top of it. Mix together the dry rub ingredients and sprinkle
evenly on both sides. Place the pork on the cooling rack. Cook the pork, flipping once halfway through cooking time. Smaller chops should take around 4-5 minutes per side, ¾ inch chops should take around 7-8 minutes per side, 1 inch or more chops should take around 8-10 minutes per side. Apply a 1 tablespoon of Bellisari’s Harvest Ginger Peach on top of each pork chop, and cook the remainder of the time.
When the chops reach 145 degrees F internally, the chops are done.
Use the remaining dripping as a spread to apply on vegetables. I like
potatoes, asparagus or brussels sprouts.
Finally, my favorite recipe so far for using our Harvest Ginger Peach Spread are these amazing Harvest Ginger Peach Carnitas Bites. (https://bellisaris.com/blogs/lets-make-this/lets-make-this-harvest-ginger-peach-carnitas-bites) The combination of sweet and spicy is irresistible, and these little bites will get gobbled down in a hurry!
In addition to creating new gourmet sauces and spreads, my partners and I get super excited about the new recipes and uses that we develop too. Sharing them with all of you is our favorite part. If you’ve come up with a recipe or found some different uses for our Harvest Ginger Peach Spread, we’d love to hear about it in the comments. Otherwise – ENJOY! Happy experimenting from all of us at Bellisari’s.
